The Canonical Abbreviation/Acronym List

On March 21, 1997, this list was awarded the "We Rock" award, but I no longer have a valid link back to the awarding site. Thanks to whoever nominated me.

Compiled by James Marshall e-mail me
Last Updated on March 2, 2009
Total abbrev/acro count: 1136

[Feel free to distribute it as you like, but preferably as the complete list with all headers, footers, etc. intact. And remember, if you have any new abbreviations or acronyms of this type that I can add to this list, please e-mail me with them so that I can update my list! Credits and disclaimer are at the end of the file. Oh, if you can't find what you're looking for in my list, you might want to try AcronymFinder.com; they have tons more abbreviations and acronyms than I do and in a lot more subject areas as well.]

Many thanks to all of you without whom this file wouldn't exist. I am trying to keep this list to the more commonly used and/or interesting abbrevs/acros out there, so I may not included everything I've been sent. Sorry, about that, but there are *tons* of abbrev/acros out there so I'm trying to limit my list a little bit. I've forgotten to keep track of the contributors to this list for a while, so if you've sent something to me that was included and your name isn't here in the credits, please remind me of your contribution and I'll add your name to the list.

Please note that I am only the compiler of this list, NOT the creator. I merely compiled the available abbreviations and acronyms that people have sent to me. I am not responsible for their accuracy or appropriateness. If you find any of the material contained here offensive or inappropriate, do not blame me -- I did not make up any of them, I just compiled them together from various sources. This list is meant to be a source for looking up abbreviations and acronyms that are used on the Internet and therefore it is not up to me to censor them; I include what people tell me is used. If you don't like the abbreviations and acronyms in here, simply do not use them.
