Acronymonics are phrases, hidden within names, that explain what the names stand for.For example, we all know that bra stands for bosom restraint apparatus, and that STOP stands for skid tires on pavement. But can other words be similarlyMoreAcronymonics are phrases, hidden within names, that explain what the names stand for.For example, we all know that bra stands for bosom restraint apparatus, and that STOP stands for skid tires on pavement.

But can other words be similarly descriptive?You betcha.My assumption − yet to be disproved − is that we unwittingly name people, places, and things with acronyms that can be very revealing if we simply apply a little creative thinking.In this book, you’ll learn that names of all types can be shown to represent informative phrases. The names come from a variety of categories, including movies, people, landmarks, technology, and television.

Some of the acronymonics will inform and explain. Some will amuse and surprise. And I hope all will fascinate and delight those with a curious nature and an appreciation of creative word play.What’s in a name? Plenty, when given the proper scrutiny, as you will see in Acronymonics.***Robert W.

Harris is the author of Eat Gluten Free Now!, Murders by the Book, and The Nine Faces of Boo.
