Elections make sense; central-bank announcements replete with jargon, arcane policies, and acronyms do not stir souls.
One of the acronyms spawned by the Internet is IANAL, which stands for “I am not a lawyer.”
The men had all sorts of lingo and acronyms that they used to review the services of the women they procured erotic services from.
A word formed by combining the beginning letters of a name or phrase, as in WASP for white Anglo-Saxon Protestant, or by combining the initial syllables of a series of words, as in radar, which stands for radio detecting and ranging.
Note: Acronyms are often less clumsy than the complete expressions they represent and are easier to write and remember.
