I know I have brought you Web sites before where abbreviations are defined. But this one is quite different! Not only does it give you the ability to search abbreviations (and acronyms) for businesses and organizations internationally, but it also connects you to a Web page if one exists.

For example, if you do a quick search for AAA, you’ll get 11 matches for it. Some of those are:

Amateur Athletics Association (of England)
American Academy of Audiology
American Automobile Association

Each entry defines what the letters stand for and it provides you with a link to their Web site.

For example, the American Automobile Association is

If you click on Advanced Search at the top of the page, you’ll see even more search options, like Reverse Search, Advanced Search and Quick Search.

Reverse Search – This lets you type in the words you’re looking for an acronym or abbreviation for. Using AAA again as an example, you could type in American Automobile and you’d get three results: one for AAA, one for NVSAAC and one for SAAC.

Advanced Search – This is where the Quick Search needs the exact abbreviation or acronym. It will search for the letters you type in. So, if you type in AA, you’ll get SAAC.

If the abbreviation or acronym you’re looking for isn’t there, click on the Submit New Abbreviation link near the top of the page. That will give you a form to fill out and submit. Have fun!
