comment Does pronouncing an initialism make it an acronym?
@nohat I believe that difference is for instance NATO is pronounced as a word "nay-toe" and not as "N-A-T-O" similarly BBC is pronounced "B-B-C" not "bbbck" or something similar.

comment Question of Initialisms vs Acronyms
Of course, and I recognize that a company makes a choice on what to call themselves, however my question stands -- which definition applies? Does their choice supersede the definition?

Thank you. Also for what it's worth my spell check does not recognize initialism as a valid word.

comment What does “Feather your nest” mean?
All that being said, despite the downvotes and it being closed this question has been viewed over 2500 times and is the first result now when googling for the meaning of this idiom. So I'm happy that my incredibly basic question is still helping other people today.

Thank you for the clarification. I learned something new. Though that's not what I was looking for. Thank you anyway!
