What Does PPG Mean in a Text?

PPG means "Points Per Game."

PPG is most commonly used in sports statistics to indicate the average number of points a player or team scores per game. For example:
  • I tried to calculate my PPG in real life, but I couldn't figure out how to factor in all the missed opportunities.
  • I may not have a high PPG in sports, but I have a high PPG (Pizzas Per Game) when I'm watching them at home.

An Academic Look at PPG

PPG is an initialism abbreviation. It is the type of abbreviation that consists of the first letter of each word in a phrase or name and that is pronounced by saying each letter separately, rather than pronouncing the abbreviation as a word, i.e., "P-P-G." Other examples of initialism abbreviations include "FBI" (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and "CEO" (Chief Executive Officer).

Initialisms differ from acronyms, which are abbreviations that are pronounced as words, rather than by saying each letter separately. For example, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is pronounced as "NA-sa" and UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) is pronounced as "Yoo-ni-sef".
