|short type||Short integer type specifier|
simple-type-specifier := short
When used alone or with int, the short type specifier represents a short integer, whose range is no bigger than a plain int. It can be combined with unsigned to denote an unsigned integer whose range is no bigger than a plain unsigned. A plain short is signed by default, but you can use the signed specifier to be explicit.
