What is the correct term for a phrase that can be shortened using the first letters of each word to make another word? I know this is a confusing question... here's an example:
Ace Shadow Knight = A.C.E.
Delaware Business and Recreation Association = de.b.r.a.
I'm totally frustrated... I used to know the term
Thanks for the help
The term is "acronym"
A word formed from the initial letters of a name, such as WAC for Women's Army Corps, or by combining initial letters or parts of a series of words, such as radar for radio detecting and ranging.
