TLA

From Encyclopedia Dramatica

Jump to: navigation, search

TLA is commonly used as an abbreviation for Three Letter Acronym. This definition is historically flawed, since acronyms are supposed to be pronounced as a single word rather than spelled out.

You've got two options:

  • Reject the formal meaning of the word "acronym". Heck, just look at the {{acronyms}} box below and tell me that you don't spell almost all of them out. Why should petty rules about grammar stop you now?
  • Embrace revisionist history. Call it a "Three Letter Abbreviation". Join the Grammar Nazi party while you're at it, loser.

Note: Use of common TLAs such as OMG, WTF, or LOL do not, in any way, make one 1337 or anything other than teh ghey. Doing so will warrant relentless raep-age of your mom.
