An Academic Look at AFAIAA

AFAIAA is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Aay Eff Aay Eye Aay Aay), but as this is harder to say than "As far as I am aware," it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation AFAIAA is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.
