With reference to this question Difference between an acronym and abbreviation? I am getting confused in pronouncing them as a separate entity or not.
When I searched on internet it confused me more. According to it,
Unlike an abbreviation, an acronym is usually pronounced as a word. You do not pronounce it letter by letter. The British Broadcasting Corporation is often abbreviated to BBC. We pronounce all three letters. In the case of acronyms like NATO and AIDS, we pronounce them as words.
On the contary, PHP is Hypertext Preprocessor, a recursive acronym which is not pronounced as a word. Rather, we do say each letter separately but it is still an acronym. So clear my confusion over it.
