    Exclamation What does Esoo means?

    Hi everyone..

    recently , I studied in the vocabulary in use book an acronym which is no more used as a full word such as laser.

    When I tried to look it up from the dictionary I didn't find it .

    The acronym is Esso.

    Can any one tell me what does it mean? and what does it stand for?

    And what does radar stand for?

    And thanks for your help.

    Note that "Esso" isn't exactly an acronym. Standard Oil can be abbreviated to S.O., and that's pronounced "ess-oh", or "esso", so that's what they decided to call the company.

    Another oil company, based in the country Kuweit, is called Q8. If you say it out loud, you can understand why.
