Here we list the variables that hold the abbrev tables for the preloaded major modes of Emacs.
This is the abbrev table for mode-independent abbrevs. The abbrevs defined in it apply to all buffers. Each buffer may also have a local abbrev table, whose abbrev definitions take precedence over those in the global table.
The value of this buffer-local variable is the (mode-specific) abbreviation table of the current buffer. It can also be a list of such tables.
The value of this variable is a list of elements of the form
(mode . abbrev-table) where mode is the name
of a variable: if the variable is bound to a non-
then the abbrev-table is active, otherwise it is ignored.
abbrev-table can also be a list of abbrev tables.
This is the local abbrev table used in Fundamental mode; in other words, it is the local abbrev table in all buffers in Fundamental mode.
This is the local abbrev table used in Text mode.
This is the local abbrev table used in Lisp mode. It is the parent of the local abbrev table used in Emacs Lisp mode. See Abbrev Table Properties.
