    Writing style question

    If someone assigned a word designation to the individual letters of another word, what is this “style” called? It’s not an acronym (ex. OPEC) or an abbreviation (ex. RN, MD)


    S - smart
    H – hilarious
    A - anxious
    N - nice
    G - good
    H - appy
    A - attitude
    I - imagination
