Re: Acronyms, abbreviations and initalisms
Am I the only person who gets irritated when initalisms are incorrectly
described as acronyms? The distinction is quite obvious and simple and
yet time after time I see lists of "acronyms" that are initialisms and
this from technical communicators. The latest example I have just seen
is on the last page of April 06 Intercom magazine.
Just a Friday rant!
