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

1. To make words into acronyms that don't stand for anything with the sole purpose of emphasizing the word! Especially as wall posts or status updates on social networking sites.

2. A step above ALL CAPS and exclamation marks!!!!

v The process of reducing as many words as possible to a series of acronyms. This practice is often found in organizations where groupthink is rampant and human interpersonal skills are undeveloped.
Instead of saying "We're going out for lunch. Will you be at the afternoon staff meeting," you could acronymize and say "We're going OFL. Will you be at the ASM?"

Extreme version: WGOFL. WYBATASM?

The use of an acronym in the form of a sentence, using upper case for the emphasis of the acronym.
"Choosing Underhand Nasty Tactics"
"Following Utter Comedic Kings, Over Fellow Followers"
" Imagine, Living Over Valleys Evermore, Yielding Our Utopia"

The Acronymical sentence does not have to make sense, but it's genius when it can be done!
Try re-reading my text, the Acronymical sentence is what I really wanted to say
