This helps a whole lot! I keep seeing these acronyms and thinking "what in the world does that even mean?"

Thanks for this! :clap:

The most comprehensive site I found for the acronyms is:

http://www.cc.utah.edu/~nahaj/Mormon/

It has a lengthy list that gave me a base that I add to, as needed.

Please Note: The author attempts to be 'balanced' and offers a few derogatory terms of anti-Mormons. However, there is much more info that is useful for Mormon investigation, like the Bibliography and explanation of Mormon terms.

"No, there is no copyright notice here. What's the point? If someone can make millions publishing it, fine... They are brighter than I am. If you find this information useful, you are welcome to include it in other documents. I prefer credit be given, but don't require it."

Maybe parts of this document could be pinned and added to when appropriate? It was far more time-consuming to find abbreviations/acronyms and explanations than I originally expected it to be.

There is also a book called:

The A to Z of Mormonism
By Davis Bitton, Thomas G. Alexander

http://books.google.com/books?id=br8dke ... &q&f=false

It has a Google Books excerpt and I particularly liked the Chronology of Mormonism. It also offers a dictionary of terms.

This is my first post and I'll aim to provide an introductory post later this afternoon. :)

For some reason this just reminded me of one of my favorite jokes about is the glass half full that I saw on a t-shirt. And any regulars here know I have a burning testimony of humor - I will even say that I KNOW I like humor.

Here is the link, but I don't know if the hawkgrrrl character in "real" life has laser eyes that can burn someone when they anger her. I suspect I will find out when hawkgrrrl reads the "sexists" one. I would comment that hawkgrrrl (or any other woman) could wear this t-shirt and "honeybun" could refer to DH (yes - "DH" is how I am tying this into this thread - yeah - that's the ticket).
