Thank you for the affirmation. I didn't think that I was looking for an authority. It's just that I had not come across an abbreviation before and wondered what others might suggest. I was in the midst of writing the below when I went to the Leipzig list. There I discovered NMLZ and decided to add VBLZ as an afterthought.

Charlie, I can't see why you feel that you need an authority for this.
Scholars and scientists invent terms and abbreviations all the time, and
VBLZ(R) is the obvious abbreviation for "verbalizer".
