Must we?  Some say "sequel" and others say "ess-cue-ell", and I
believe that the latest word on the subject is to say "ess-cue-ell"
but deny that it stands for anything, particularly not
"Structured Query Language".

By your definitions, "Mr." is an acronym.

Troll: What does "ISO" (as in the issuer of ISO standards) stand for?
