    What common abbreviations do you know that have more than one meaning? I'm sure they're hiding in the dictionary somewhere, but I'm just curious as to which ones have the most meanings.

    Things like AM, AC, FDR etc.

    PTO means Preliminary Try Out in a sport I used to do, but also Power Take Off, a part on a tractor that can drive a mower, etc.

    NATO, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, basically military "the good guys" if you're North American, Canadian, etc., but in the US you'll find most movie theaters have a sign saying they're members of NATO, it's something like National Alliance of Theater Owners.

    I'm sure there are a ton more.

    Quote:PTO is also Parent Teacher Organization; similar to but DEFINITELY not the same as PTA. The school has MUCH more control of a PTO than of a PTA.
