What Does SPST Mean?

SPST means "Same Place, Same Time."

The abbreviation SPST is used with the meaning "Same Place, Same Time" to confirm arrangements for the next contact or physical meeting. SPST can be used either as a statement or as a question. If used as a question, it would normally be followed by a question mark (i.e., it would be written "SPST?"). However, as it is common in text-based messaging to omit all punctuation, including question marks, context is crucial to understating the use of SPST.

SPST means exactly the same as the abbreviation STSP (Same Time, Same Place).

An Academic Look at SPST

As it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Ess Pee Ess Tee"), SPST is classified as an initialism abbreviation. Initialisms are different to acronyms, which are spoken like words.

SPST is often used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). It can also play the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is still commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, even as a question, it can be written "SPST?" or "SPST".
