Our Price: £4.94 (subject to change)
Like it or not, abbreviations and acronyms are now an essential ingredient of everyday life. Since the first edition of The Wordsworth Dictionary of Abbreviations & Acronyms was published in mid-1997, the compilers have been diligently collecting further examples from many walks of life - including, for example, such gems as DISH: Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (the result of eating too much protein which causes the vertebrae to fuse, aka Friar Tuck syndrome), GROLIES: Guardian Readers Of Limited Intelligence in Ethnic Skirts, IYDLAOTMTFOAHABM: If You Don't Like Anything On The Menu, Then F*** Off And Have A Big Mac (seen at 'The Talkhouse', Stanton St.John, Oxford), and ROMP: Radical Office Movement Policy (at Pearl Assurance, where moving from one desk to another is alleged to reduce clutter).
