Eg

In journalism, never write e.g.:

eg = exempli gratia

But who knows the old Latin expression exempli gratia?  Did you know?  I didn’t.  I had to look it up.

Exempli gratia is Latin for the English expression “for example”.  Stick to English rather than Latin.  If you mean “for example”, then write in English and write in full: for example.
