Notes from Clif

I've been online a long time but I still find many abbreviations online that I can't figure out. Chat rooms and forums seem to be the worst place for someone new. Abbreviations.com lets you type in those abbreviations and it will usually find the meaning.


Now you don't have to feel stupid when you ask someone what LOL means.



Abbreviations.com is the world's largest and most comprehensive directory and search engine for acronyms, abbreviations and initialisms on the Internet.


In their daily life people are exposed to new, ever-growing technical terms where occasionally a single term has a totally different meaning in a diverse context. In addition, one might need to have a list of acronyms or abbreviations that relates to a specific subject. It might be a student that is looking for a list of terms in physiology, a businessman that needs to prepare a lecture on international business or a laboratory that would like to print an abbreviated form of the Periodic Table.
