I'm sorry, but I can't take the credit for it. calley03 posted the list in their new member into.

I've seen an even more comprehensive list on NewGenesisCoupe forum that I joined a long time ago that didn't really take off like the 2 we are all active on. I meant to copy & post it over here, but got busy & just forgot about it.

P.S I went back over there & copied the list & update OP

Acronyms (initialisms) - are abbreviations that are formed using the initial components in a phrase or name. These components may be individual letters (as in CEO) or parts of words . There is no universal agreement on the precise definition of the various terms.

I'm working on the alphabeitcal order, we were pretty busy at work today & I've fallen behind on the forum.
