Description

Abbreviations occur in every aspect of our daily lives. Some have become words in their own right, like radar and laser, and many are almost never used in their full form (phone, MOT, DVD). Others, like cf., ibid. and viz., are often seen but fewer and fewer of us know what they stand for. Thousands more belong to specialist jargon, understood by insiders - TLAs (three-letter acronyms) such as WAN or WAP and other acronyms such as NIMBY and BOGOF. This new book provides explanations for over 8,000 entries, and covers the full range of subject areas including law, computing, aviation, politics and medicine, as well as chemical symbols and txt msgs. From GDP to WHO and CPR to IMHO, this book will give you the meaning of every abbreviation you ever wondered about.
