Crazy Eddie Acronym dictionary? (91* d) RE: Acronym dictionary? 04 Jul 01

Dave O, Call me a pedant ("You're a pedant"), but there is at least one more short-form: the portmanteau word.

Take the first part of one word, and the last part of another, stick them together to form a new word.

"Motorists Hotel" shortened to MOTEL.
