The Sarawak Dictionary of Acronyms and Abbreviations

The Sarawak Dictionary of Acronyms & Abbreviations is a collaboration effort between Pustaka and the author, Dr. David J. Jones. Acronyms are formed by taking the initial letters or parts of a group of words, thereby creating another word.

The dictionary will assist students, professional writers, journalists, civil servants and others seeking generally accepted abbreviations. It is hoped that it will encourage consistency in the way phrases, departmental and programme names are shortened.

The dictionary is available in two (2) formats that is printed and digital version. Users are encouraged to add acronyms and abbreviations via online version of this dictionary.
