Dating Acronyms

So, what’s an acronym? It’s a short version of a phrase that usually contains the first letter of each word within the phrase. They have been around since, well, forever, but were particularly brought to the fore in the 1970s and 1980s with the advent of newspaper lonely hearts ads, as each word cost money and potential suitors wanted to keep their costs down! Nowadays, text speech contains many acronyms (as well as other bizarre shorthand words) so we’re all pretty used to them, but do you know what they all mean?
