Deciphering Acroynyms

I wrote about the trouble I have with Acronyms yesterday at Slaw. Today’s Tip: Use an Acronym Dictionary!

I have a nice little book on my reference shelves called Acrobuster. It is a dictionary of Canadian English acronyms, initialisms and abbreviations.  It is available in these libraries. There are other print sources, but I like this one because it is Canadian.

There are also online Abbreviation or Acronym Dictionaries:
Internet Slang Dictionary & Translator
Acronyms and Abbreviations from
Acronyms search tab at The Free Dictionary

Do you have any favourite sources?
