Subject: acronyms, initialisms, and such

I need references on




and hybrid formations of such.

I seem to recall an article in a festschrift that I read in the early to

mid 1960s while still in grad school. I would hope that there are more

recent (defintional) studies of such critters.

Any suggested bibliographic items would be much appreciated. My current

interest is pretty much limited to English.

Thanks in advance.
