Acronyms Glamour

"Despite its tucked-away setting and identifying acronym, there is nothing clandestine about this CIA. “The footprint of this organisation is out in the community,” said Cynthia Barrett, CIA co-chairwoman."

"Participants had to come up with enterprise and publicity-attracting ways of using a cardboard cutout of Lucy - the acronym for Listen Up, Check Yourself, which encourages women to examine themselves to identify signs of breast cancer at the earliest possible stage."

"Acronyms and initialisms are abbreviations, such as NATO, laser, and IBM, that are formed using the initial letters of words or word parts in a phrase or name. Acronyms and initialisms are usually pronounced in a way that is distinct from that of the full forms for which they stand: as the names of the individual letters (as in IBM), as a word (as in NATO), or as a combination (as in IUPAC)."
