Such etymologies persist in popular culture but have no factual basis in historical linguistics, and are examples of language-related urban legends.For example, cop is commonly cited as being derived, it is presumed, from "constable on patrol," With some of these specious expansions, the "belief" that the etymology is acronymic has clearly been tongue-in-cheek among many citers, as with "gentlemen only, ladies forbidden" for golf, although many other (more credulous) people have uncritically taken it for fact. In the case of most acronyms, each letter is an abbreviation of a separate word and, in theory, should get its own termination mark.This has become such a problem that it is even evaluated at the level of medical academies such as the American Academy of Dermatology.
There are no universal standards of the multiple names for such abbreviations and of their orthographic styling.In English, abbreviations have traditionally been written with a full stop/period/point in place of the deleted part to show the ellipsis of letters—although the colon and apostrophe have also had this role—and with a space after full stops (e.g. Such punctuation is diminishing with the belief that the presence of all-capital letters is sufficient to indicate that the word is an abbreviation.Some influential style guides, such as that of the BBC, no longer require punctuation to show ellipsis; some even proscribe it.The general reason for this is convenience and succinctness for specialists, although it has led some to obfuscate the meaning either intentionally, to deter those without such domain-specific knowledge, or unintentionally, by creating an acronym that already existed.The medical literature has been struggling to control the proliferation of acronyms as their use has evolved from aiding communication to hindering it.Some well-known commercial examples dating from the 1890s through 1920s include Nabisco (National Biscuit Company), Esso (from S. Roosevelt (also of course known as FDR) under the New Deal.O., from Standard Oil), and Sunoco (Sun Oil Company). Business and industry also are prolific coiners of acronyms. Navy, is COMCRUDESPAC, which stands for commander, cruisers destroyers Pacific; it's also seen as "Com Cru Des Pac".Other examples of mnemonic acronyms include CAN SLIM, and PAVPANIC as well as PEMDAS.It is not uncommon for acronyms to be cited in a kind of false etymology, called a folk etymology, for a word.By 1943, the term acronym had been used in English to recognize abbreviations (and contractions of phrases) that were pronounced as words. In this view, the modern practice is just as legitimate as those in "proper" English of the current generation of speakers, such as the abbreviation of corporation names in places with limited writing space (e.g., ticker tape, newspaper column inches).In English, acronyms pronounced as words may be a 20th-century phenomenon. In formal writing for a broad audience, the expansion is typically given at the first occurrence of the acronym within a given text, for the benefit of those readers who do not know what it stands for.
