The use of abbreviations (acronyms and initialisms) has grown rapidly in the 21st century. The reason of their extensive use is the increasing need to save space and to avoid repetitions of rather long expressions in science, technology and business communication. Due to the fact that it is almost impossible to communicate without having the basic knowledge on acronyms and initialism in the specific field of interest the author of the paper presents definitions of abbreviations, a brief historical overview and certain rules on their spelling and pronunciation. The
paper also includes a list of commonly used acronyms and initialisms in business, finance and accounting.
