An Academic Look at AYCS

AYCS is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (Eh Why See Ess), but as this is harder to say than "As You Can See" it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation AYCS is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech. Initialisms contrast with acronyms, which are spoken like words.
