Are there any other words that sound the same whether abbreviated or not?
My example is OK sounds the same as OKAY.
In the car today Andrea and I had a conversation that went something like this.
Me: I think it would be hard not to abbreviate.
Andrea: What do you mean?
Me: Well, we’re on our way to get a DVD. Imagine if instead of going for a DVD, it was normal to say, ‘Let’s go get a Digital Versatile Disk.’
Andrea: Is that what it means?
Me: Yes. Do you want to go to the ‘International House of Pancakes?’ (iHop)
Andrea: Is that another example?
Me: Is that okay or OK?
Andrea: Get out of my car!
