    Re: Day 4: Win a Cooler Master upgrade bundle

    Is it a little pedantic to point out that 'PSU' is an initialism, not an acronym?

    Thanks for the competitions Hexus!

    Thanks for the nice giveaways, Hexus.

    Won't mind winning that PSU, but don't need the case and cooler, so not entering.

    Isn't an initialism a type of acronym?

    Acronyms you pronounce like words, initialisms you just pronounce the individual letters. Like NASA vs PSU. But yeah the acronym NASA I guess is just an initialism if you called it 'N' 'A' 'S' 'A'.

    Anyway, I don't really mind, especially when someone if offering free things

    Understood, I just was wondering if initialisms come under the umbrella of acronyms.

    Decided to Google it and of course, the umbrella terms I want here is abbreviations. Initialisms are a sub-division of abbreviations not of acronyms.

    There's my new thing learned for the day!

    Re: Day 4: Win a Cooler Master upgrade bundle

    I found the question difficult - is an ‘initialism’ the same as ‘initials’ or ‘acronym’?

    If that’s the case, it might be better to use the correct word rather than a made up one!

    If the first letter of each word makes up another word, e.g. Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), it's an acronym. If it doesn't make a pronounceable word, like PSU, it's an initialism
