Abbreviation Questions and Answers (Q&A)

The word OK might be one of the most versatile and commonly used expressions in the English language. In fact, people rarely fail to use it while writing a paragraph in English, including me. The reason is very simple, OK is a word that can be used as a noun, a verb, an interjection, and an adjective.

Being an adjective, OK denotes for 'adequate or acceptable'. When used as an interjection, it denotes 'compliance or agreement'. And it means 'assent' when it is used as a noun. It is also said that OK can be used as a loanword 😮 in other languages.


It basically stands for “Oll Korrect”, “Ole Kurreck” or “Orl Korrekt” a word slightly different from “All Correct” in Greek. Though there have been various theories given by various scholars on the full of the word OK, none of them has been finalized. It includes from Scottish ‘och aye’ and then native Choctaw Indian term ‘okeh’ (it is so) to French phrase ‘aux Cayes’(Cayes was a port known for its rum). In Greece, OK stands for “Ola Kala” which means all is well👍.

However, the correct full form of the word OK is still not known. People use it as per their choice and need in their sentence to express their expressions. Earlier this question, I didn’t even know that OK word might have a full form. LOL🤣!

AM and PM are both Latin words which stand for Anti Meridiem and Post Meridiem respectively. Anti Meridiem 'AM' simply means Before Midday while Post Meridiem means after Midday. It is common knowledge that a day is made up of 24 hours. But the use of AM and PM has led to use of two 12 hours period in a day.

Anti Meridiem is for the first 12 hours while Post Meridiem is for the second 12 hours. The first 12 hours start from midnight and run to noon and the second 12 hours start from noon run to the midnight of the second day. The use of Anti Meridiem 'AM' and Post Meridiem helps to differentiate between the hours of the day.

For example, if I say 1am, it means an hour after midnight and 3 pm mean three hours after the midday. You can use both AM and PM in their Lower case.

School is a word generally known by literate people and it because a school is where an illiterate person can be made literate. And the truth about the word is that it is not an acronym for anything. A School is a place where you learn new things i.e a place where education of any kind is imparted on you.


Today, people view school to be a place where academic works and values can be learned, but it is not so, we have other forms of education which can be imparted on someone in school. For anybody who wants to be informed must desire to go to where he would be taught.

So if I were to make every letter that makes up the word 'school' stand for something, it would be Studying Courses Help Others Out to Learn. I'm sure this is very funny but that's the only thing I could come up with.

I always wonder what would be the full form of STUDENT if it were to be an acronym. And since the word does not have any full form, coming up with a full form will be an interesting thing. Student is a word which describes a person undergoing a process of learning.


The word is one of the most used words in academic places like school. There is no school without a student and it is not only in school you can have students. Once a person seeks to gain more knowledge about something from someone who can be regarded as a teacher, such a person is a student.

In other word, a person seriously devoted to some subject, whether academic or not is a student. However, if I were to make a full form of STUDENT, it would be: Strive To Utilize Different Economic Network from Teacher. I'm sure many people would still have a better full form of the word STUDENT.
