If LASER stands for…, what about MP3?
Interestingly, we use some authentic english words found in dictionary which are unbelievably acronyms!
In fact, the word laser which you use during PowerPoint or Keynote Presentations is short for
Light Amplification by Stimulating Emission of Radiation.
However the word MP3 which is a format in which your music is compressed can be expanded into following notations:
MPEG 4 Layer 3
Motion Picture Experts’ Group 4 Layer 3.
So next time you listen to your MP3 player or having the power to point during presentations, try point out their expanded names.
