I know acronyms are like abbreviation of words. For example, LASER would be Light Amplification by Simulated Emission of Radiation and SCUBA would be Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus.
So, I came across an acronym CIBER as in Collaborative Initiative for Bee Research. I do not see where the E in that acronym comes in but I could guess that it came from BEe.
I have been taught that in acronyms, one letter should only represent only one word. Would CIBER be accepted as a proper acronym? If so, is there a rule that I am not aware of?
