I just sent a text to a friend, who didn't understand an acronym I used for a game:
"Ah, I said it in a previous text so thought it was ok to abbreviate it."
Though, since it was an acronym I had created, could I have used the word 'acronymise/ze' to be more specific?
I'm pretty sure it isn't a (formally used) word, but I wondered, as you often refer to acronyms specifically as acronyms, rather than abbreviations. Can you be more specific with a verb, too?
It sounds too odd to me, so I'm guessing generally no. But I wondered—so perhaps I'm wrong. Or half wrong.
