Examples of AF in Sentences

An Academic Look at AF

Because it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Aye Eff"), AF is classified as an initialism abbreviation. Initialisms are different to acronyms, which are spoken like words.

AF creates a simile by likening an adjective to the word f*ck. For example:
  • He is as clever AF.
  • Here, clever is the adjective being likened to f*ck.
As this likening is meaningless, it is best to think of AF as an adverb that modifies an adjective to strengthen it (in a similar same way as the word very).
