    Question please help me recall word name

    Hello-
    I can't remember the name of the word that is used to describe when the first letter of a sequence of words is lumped together to shorten the name of a group or organization,etc.. as in UNICEF, or FEMA. Can you please refresh my memory??

    Thank you so much.

    Jen.
