I have the following in my
~/.emacs for initiating the abbrev mode
(setq-default abbrev-mode t) (setq save-abbrevs t) (setq abbrev-file-name "~/abbrev.el") (if (file-readable-p abbrev-file-name) (read-abbrev-file abbrev-file-name)) (dolist (hook '(erc-mode-hook emacs-lisp-mode-hook text-mode-hook)) (add-hook hook #'abbrev-mode))
I get the following message saying that the abbreviation file is loaded
Loading /Users/baburaj/abbrev.el (source)...done For information about GNU Emacs and the GNU system, type C-h C-a.

I also get the following when I type
(text-mode-abbrev-table) ";af" 1 "aerofoil"
However when I type
;af it does not expand to
What is the error that I am making? How can I fix this?
