Subject RE: acronym-list?
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2003 12:44:30 GMT
IMO there are enough acronym finders on the web already, I can't see any
need to have one here too.
Most acronyms used in english conversational prose are correctly identified
in listings like this, including the bizzare ROTFLMAO.
I use www.acronymfinder.com, and FYI this is what it says about NIH
http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-query.asp?String=exact&Acronym=NIH&Find=Find
