acronym - 1. Technically, a word that is formed by combining some parts (usually the first letters) of some other terms. For example, modem is the acronym derived from modulator/demodulator. In everyday speech, the term is also used to refer to initialisms, which are combinations of letters representing a longer phrase. For example, CRT is an initialism for cathode ray tube. The difference is that an acronym is pronounced as if it were a word rather than just a series of individual letters. 2. A new word (neologism) or pronounceable and hence memorable name coined from the first or first few letters or parts of a phrase or compound term (example: NATO for North Atlantic Treaty Organization). Compare with initialism and abbreviation. ;
