This week, we'll look at abbreviations and acronyms. You see them everywhere from texts and license plates to government forms and love notes. They might be cute and clever or confusing and inscrutable but these brevis or shortenings have become the bane of writers and lovers of language across all cultures. We'll hear from six artists PDQ use them in name and title only. LOL They are 2%, The Reverend Shortboy, WEED, Alien S, Alec Troniq and Rho. I'm your MC Jim Nye.
