News-lyhenteitä [News acronyms]

News-lyhenteet ovat news-kirjoittelussa käytettyjä fraasien lyhenteitä. Ne koostuvat useimmiten fraasin sanojen alkukirjaimista ja kirjoitetaan mielellään suuraakkosin. Fraasit taas ovat yleisesti englanninkielisiä, vaikka joitakin omakielisiäkin näkee.

Samoja lyhenteitä käytetään myös chat- ja IRC-keskusteluissa sekä matkapuhelinten tekstiviesteissä. Niihin sisältyy kuitenkin paljon keskustelun henkilökohtaisuutta kuvastavia lyhenteitä, jotka olen koettanut karsia pois alla olevasta luettelosta. Erityisesti olen karsinut pois alatyyliset puhtaat henkilökohtaisuudet.

Luetteloni on luultavasti yksi maailman täydellisimpiä (ja täydentyy). Julkaisemalla näin täydellisen luettelon en kuitenkaan halua provosoida ketään käyttämään näitä lyhenteitä. Päinvastoin, suosittelen käyttämään niitä harkiten kuin arvoesineitä. Mutta koska niitä kuitenkin käytetään, luetteloni antaa mahdollisuuden ymmärtää ne.

Ainakin toistaiseksi katsoin parhaaksi olla suomentamatta tai edes selittämättä suomeksi fraaseja. Jos se näyttää myöhemmin tarpeelliselta, saatan sen tehdä. Toistaiseksi sanonkin, jos et ymmärrä fraasin merkitystä, älä käytä sitä.

News acronyms are acronyms of frases used in news writing. They are mostly composed of the first letters of the words in the frase and are best to be written in upper case. The frases are generally in english although some may be in native languages.

The same acronyms are used also in chat and IRC conversations and in the text messages of cellular phones. But they contain a lot of acronyms that reflect the person to person nature of the conversation. I have tried to eliminate them. Especially I have eliminated pure insults.

My list is probably one of the most complete in the world (and becomes better). By publishing this list I don't mean to provoke anybody to use these acronyms. On the contrary, I advice to use them carefully like valuables. But since they are used anyhow, my list aims in interpreting them.

And my last advice is: if you don't understand a frase, don't use it.
