In the same way that we already told you what synonyms and antonyms are, today we are here to write some lines that explain what an acronym is. If we think about its real meaning, we can say that it is an acronym that is pronounced in the same way as a word; On the other hand, acronyms can be thought of as terms that are made up of the first letters of the concepts that form an expression. Let's see clear examples that allow us to understand it.
RADAR is a clear example of an acronym; it comes from the English acronym Radio Detection and Ranging: (RA)dio (D)etection (A)nd (R)anging. From here we can see how, being an antonym, the acronym radar is used like any word, and even has its plural, radars. AIDS is another example of an acronym. It comes from Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
It is important to note that acronyms are also specific terms that are made after combining the parts of two or more words. OFFICE is an example of this class of acronyms, being a word created from office (OFI) and computing (MATIC). EMOTICON is another example that is currently used frequently in social networks; comes from the English emoticon and icon.
