the definition says:

I'm missing the part about being pronounced as a word.
May I help? I think I can. It's right there in the second word of the
definition: it says it's a *word*, so it'll be pronounced as, er, a word!
ah, now I see where that comes from!
deviates from <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acronym> which counts the
following formations as acronyms:
BBC: British Broadcasting Corporation
OEM: Original Equipment Manufacturer
USA: The United States of America
FGM: Female Genital Mutilation
or maybe it doesn't deviate after all since they can also be
pronounced as words (any string of initials can).
I'm going to let Anne-ology make the call.
