I had to laugh when I came across these posters the other day. I read them once and it took me a second glance to see that they were actually design shortcuts. I simply read them substituting the correct word in for each of the shortcuts. Being a shortcut junkie myself, this concept definitely spoke to me. I guess I know a second language, even if only subliminally.
