Do we have to worry or take it more seriously when something becomes an acronym?
Corin Dann said on Breakfast this morning that the global financial crisis is now the GFC.
Neil has pointed out in a comment below that I was wrong to use the term acronym. He’s right, an acronym is a word formed from the initial letters of other words and GFC isn’t a word.
SO question for word lovers: is there a word which I could have used for a collection of initial letters used instead of the words without forming a word?
