One comment on “What All Those Acronyms Really Mean

  1. Some apparent acronyms or other abbreviations do not stand for anything and cannot be expanded to some meaning. Such pseudo-acronyms frequently develop as ” orphan initialisms “; an existing acronym is redefined as a non-acronymous name, severing its link to its previous meaning.
