Example: In elementary math, students learn to remember the prioritization sequence:
Paranthesis, exponents, multiplication, divison, addition, subtraction.
To remember this, all first letters are gathered in an acronym:
acronym just means any pronounceable abbreviation, such as
.COM, and is not necessarily about abbreviations made for the purpose of remembering a sequence.
Does a term for "an acronym created in order to remember a sequence" exist in English?
It does exist in my native language, which is why I am looking for an equivalent term in English. In Danish we have the word
huskeord, literally translating to
reminder-word. This term is used for instance in military contexts, where you must remember orders of action or sequences accurately and quickly.
huskeord have an English translation? I do not know what to search for in dictionaries and have been unable to find anything on the internet, thus I am asking here on this forum.
