    I've added 20 or 25 since this was first posted. I keep seeing new ones on new post, so I continue to update. Let me know if you want one added.

    FnR is my personal shorthand because I get tired of typing FoldnRoll - which is the actual name of my hard-sided popup trailer.

    acronmys come from initialism, are said as a word when there is a center vowel. does that answer it?

    ex: CAD.
    No matter what words it comes from, we say as word, not letters.
    easily pronounced. its a real word too.

    ex: FBI.
    FEDERAL BUREAU of INVESTIGATION
    we use the individual letters because “fee bee” isnt fierce enough for this organization.

    I'm not sold on that "example" saying as a word, not letters. So how do you pronounce AAA, CAA, DIL, DIY, FIL, KOA, LED, LOL, MIA, POS, MIL, SIL, SUV, etc. My FIL's is not Phil or File.
