An Academic Look at IDWT

IDWT is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Eye Dee Dublyoo Tee), but as this is harder to say than "I Don't Want To," it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation IDWT is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.

The verb "to want" indicates a desire or need for something or someone, whereas "don't want" expresses the opposite.
