A student of mines has recently wanted to know if there's a rule (a set of rules, possibly) to use to decide whether to go for (1) or (2).
(1) The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms
(2) The Terryfying Organisms Liberation, Integration and Rehabilitation Committee
My off-the-top-of-my-head answer: (2) is preferred in English as long as it doesn't sound weird/too complicated/too long and/or violate grammar.
Yet, the question boils down to simple examples, such as:
(2) heat of combustion
(3) combustion heat
Do you take (2) for being exactly the same as (3)?
Keep in mind that the "Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Reintroduction Into Society" was used on a TV show for the comedic acronym formed.
