An Academic Look at IWM

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

Of note, IWM is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Aye Dublyu Em), but as this is harder to say than "It wasn’t me," it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation WLTM is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.
