Internet Acronym Server

The Internet Acronym Server is, as its name implies, a database of acronyms collected from the Internet for the best part of two decades. An acronym is a kind of abbreviation. Acronyms are usually made from the capitalized initials of the words it represents, for example FBI is an acronym for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Contrary to what some sources say, acronyms do not have to be pronounceable words.
