An Academic Look at AOTA

AOTA is an initialism abbreviation. This means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Ay Oh Tee Ay"). (Initialisms contrast with acronyms, which are spoken like words.)

AOTA is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.
