An Academic Look at WRU

WRU is an initialism abbreviation. This means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Dublyu Ar Yu), but as this is harder to say than "Where are you," it is not often spoken using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation WRU is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech. WRU plays the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, it can be written "WRU?" or "WRU".
