    2. It can be confusing. That’s true. TBH (to be honest), I am not sure how to tell “when” a newly created acronym or initialed abbreviation “forms” a word. Thanks to texting, new acronyms and abbreviations are created frequently because it aids in reducing time (and typos) of typing. My advice is to look for the acronym/abbreviation on urbandictionary.com This website is kept up to date and helpful. I am sorry I am unable to be more precise. Hope this helps.

    2. I took this from Wikipedia, because honestly, I live like 3 hours away from LA, but I've never bothered to learn why the airport was called LAX, lol. 'At that time, "LA" served as the designation for Los Angeles Airport. But with the rapid growth in the aviation industry the designations expanded to three letters c. 1947, and "LA" became "LAX." The letter "X" has no specific meaning in this identifier (just like the X in DXB - Dubai).' So, basically, it has no meaning. They just needed to add an extra letter in because so many airports were popping up around the world and they needed to separate them from each other.
