vt; vi To reduce a perfectly acceptable title or phrase into an acronym. . Generally thought to be best avoided in most cases, certainly those not in extensive use, or those whose original phrasing was selected for it's poetic or prosaic beauty or clarity. Especially egregious are acronyms that have been "Reverse Acronymized", or cooked up from acronyms that happen to be words, but whose constituent words are contrived at best.
e.g "Office of Academic Freedom" become OAF
"Compound Acronymizing" is practiced by techie geeks, e.g. JXML
