Nowadays it is possible to access an enormous amount of information about any topic that comes to mind, and the culprit for this is the means of communication that we are currently using to read this article: the Internet.
Comfortably, in our house, we can obtain in a couple of minutes a few publications and articles on the subject that interests us at that moment, which for example can be something related to a training system that we do not know, a specific diet, the properties of any food or nutritional supplement...
Depending on the level of the text that we are reading, it is possible that some acronyms appear, of which we do not know their meaning or this is explained very briefly, generating a doubt about what exactly it is referring to, for this reason it can be very useful. become familiar with those acronyms, or acronyms, most common in this world; something that will undoubtedly make it easier for us in the future to read and understand those same texts.
Acronyms are "words" that we have been seeing all our lives, and that have been used for many years, we are not discovering anything new or latest news related to new technologies.
An acronym is a word made up of the initials of a set of words, or parts of other words, and that is used and pronounced as an independent word, with its own meaning.
For example, a term that we often hear in the news is from the UN, “ The UN has released a statement in which it exposes... ” That term UN refers to the words Organization of the United Nations, and instead of saying or write all these words each time, the compound term is used by its acronym. This would be a case in which the acronym is made up only of the initials, and it is the same case as INE (National Statistics Institute), or AVE (Spanish High Speed).
As we have said, the acronym can be made up of parts of words; such is the case of ADENA, an acronym derived from Association for the Defense of Nature; or from a term that has already fallen into disuse such as HI-FI, derived from the English High Fidelity widely used in the 80s and 90s to refer to high fidelity or quality sound formats.
The acronyms come to be something similar to an acronym, with the difference that they cannot be pronounced as an independent word, but rather they require naming each of the letters that make up that "word".
For example, our DNI, pronounced De Ene I, refers, as we well know, to the National Identity Document. The same happens with ADN, ONG, or USB.
As we have already mentioned, the world of sports is not exempt from using these terms, and it is that more and more abbreviations and acronyms are constantly being added that can make us lose our place a bit when we try to learn something new.
