In the News (Mon 18 Feb 19)

Acronyms often occur in jargon or as names of organizations because they often serve as abbreviations of long terms that are frequently referenced, so a shortened form is desirable.
Traditionally, abbreviations use a period to mark the part that was deleted.
Additionally, abbreviations like "Interpol" and "Gestapo" that consist mostly of non-initial letters of constituent words are often called acronyms, although some people insist they are properly called portmanteaus.

 Acronym and initialism - CompWisdom   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In computer lingo, it is common to use the name of a computer program, format, or function, acronym or not, as a verb; for example "Sam zipped the files" or "Sam zip’ed the files" means that John used the program zip on the files to combine and/or compress them.
Abbreviations that use the first letter of each word in a phrase are sometimes referred to as initialisms.
An abbreviation expansion procedure evaluates, based on the classification values for words neighboring the identified words, which, if any, of the potential expansion values is applicable, and substitutes the potential expansion for the identified abbreviation word when evaluation yields a success value.

Abbreviations, both of single words and of phrases, having a meaning more or less fixed and recognized, are common in ancient writings and inscriptions (see Palaeography and Diplomatic), and very many are in use at the present time.
A distinction is to be observed between abbreviations and the contractions that are frequently to be met with in old manuscripts, and even in early printed books, whereby letters are dropped out here and there, or particular collocations of letters represented by somewhat arbitrary symbols.
The commonest form of abbreviation is the substitution for a word of its initial letter; but, with a view to prevent ambiguity, one or more of the other letters are frequently added.

 SingaporeMoms - Parenting Encyclopedia - TLA
The TLA (Three-Letter Acronym or Abbreviation) is the most popular type of abbreviation in computing and telecom terminology and Internet slang, and is also common in political jargon.
There is some disagreement about whether abbreviations like TLA actually constitute acronyms (see acronym and initialism), and this has led to the increasing use of the word abbreviation as opposed to acronym in expanding the term.
In the MS-DOS operating system for personal computers, because only three-letter file extensions (usually denoting the file type) were allowed, many longer abbreviations were shortened to three letters (for example JPEG to JPG, HTML to HTM), and many of these are still used.

 Abbreviation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abbreviation (from Latin brevis "short") is strictly a shorter form of a word, but more particularly, an abbreviation is a letter or group of letters, taken from a word or words, and employed to represent them for the sake of brevity.
Syllabic abbreviations are preferred by the US Navy as it increases readability amidst the large number of initialisms that would otherwise have to fit into the same acronyms.
The abbreviations, or more accurately "symbols" (using Roman letters (Greek in the case of ohm)) for these units are also clearly defined together with a set of prefixes, themselves symbolised (abbreviated) with Roman letters (Greek in the singular case of micro, µ), denoting powers of ten.
