An Academic Look at RTG

As it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Arr Tee Gee"), RTG is classified as an initialism abbreviation. Initialisms are different to acronyms, which are spoken like words.

RTG often plays the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question). However, even when used as a question, it is commonly seen without a question mark (i.e., it can be written "RTG?" or "RTG"). The context will usually make the intended meaning clear.
