Did you ever want to find out what any acronym, abbreviation, or initialism stood for?
That's what Mike Molloy, the founder and developer of AcronymFinder.com, said, when he launched the site in 1997, “I had two goals: I wanted to make available a database of abbreviations and acronyms I had collected since 1985; and I wanted to learn about web database programming. Acronym Finder wasn’t the first web-based abbreviations search site, but the day it went online, it became the largest human-edited collection available – and it still is.”
Acronym Finder is the world's largest and most comprehensive dictionary and contains more than 4 million acronyms acronyms, abbreviations, and initialisms.
