TLA

From Encyclopedia Dramatica
Jump to navigation Jump to 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.
