If you come across any we have missed please feel free to let us know so we can add them in.

Also for any others that you may come across and are not sure the meaning of you may like to check out TheFreeDictionary "English, Medical, Legal, Financial, and Computer Dictionaries, Thesaurus, Acronyms, Idioms, Encyclopedia, a Literature Reference Library, and a Search Engine all in one!" by Farlex

Just type the Acronym into their search box and click search - normally it will say something like "is not available in the general English dictionary and thesaurus" it will give a link to try Acronyms.
