three letter acronym (TLA)

A Three Letter Acronym (TLA) is an acronym consisting of three letters.

Unlike abbreviations,acronyms consist of the first letters of several words. In contrast, abbreviations do not necessarily have to consist of the initial letters. These two examples illustrate the difference: The acronym TLI stands for Transport Layer Interface, while the abbreviation ABX stands for Advanced Branch eXchange. Whereby the "X" is not the initial letter of Exchange.

Just like 3-letter acronyms, there are 2- and 4-letter acronyms.
