We explain to you what an acronym is, a list of examples of this type of abbreviation and what are its differences with an acronym.
What is an acronym?
Minimum acronym means an abbreviation or set of acronyms that, due to its frequent use, ends up being incorporated as one more word, to the point that many people ignore its origin or the exact meaning of the terms it groups.
For example, the term l ser comes from the English acronym meeting: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (that is: Amplification of the Light by Stimulated Emission of Radiation), but it is used ordinarily as a common word (note even c How he wears an accent in Spanish).
Often they are words formed by fragments of two or more words, so they are not usually written in capital letters, as in the case of initials or initials, but in the ordinary sense of a word common. But the meaning of the acronym will be equal to the sum of the meanings of the other words that compose it.
Occasionally, retro- acronyms can also be spoken, that is: words of origin and ordinary use, which are reinterpreted as `` acrimate '' due to their specific context of use. trophic
Such is the case of the USA PATRIOT Law or the American Patriotic Law, which, after being formulated, was understood as the acronym of Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools
Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (i.e. Unify and Strengthen the United States by Providing the Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstacle Terrorism ).
The acronyms are not too common in the Spanish language, although they do have important historical precedents, such as the emergence of the pronoun you, whose origin comes from the acronym vs ( your mercy ), contracted in vust e d .

Differences between acronyms and acronyms
While the acronym consists of grouping the initial letter of various terms to form an abbreviation that is written in uppercase (and often separated by periods), acronyms allow a much freer junction of word fragments, whether initial or not, to form a word whose terms are not separated and whose initial letter is only capitalized.
- Acronym deed : Sectur ( Sec retat de Tur ismo), Telmex ( Tel Efonía Mex icana) or CorpoMiranda (Development Corporation of the Tuy River Basin “Francisco de Miranda”, SA).
- Writing of acronyms: UN (Organization of United Nations ), HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) or CD (English: C ompact D isc, “compact disc”).
