ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "E".
Escarpment (from Wikipedia): is a steep slope or long cliff that results from erosion or faulting and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations.
This one is at Chaco Canyon. New Mexico is FULL of escarpments! I should have more examples of it, but I guess when something is in abundance, you don't give it a second thought.
But this really is a slight diversion from the acronyms. I won't list them all, but thought I'd list a few as they are interesting (I am also including some abbreviations just for fun):
E. east, Eastern, Engineering, English
ED: the Deaprtment of Education
E.C.M.: European Common Market
EDP: eletronic data processing
EDT: Eastern Daylight Time
E.F.T.: Electronic Funds Transfer
Eg. : for example
EM: enlisted man
ENE: east northeast
ESE: east southeast
EPA: environmental protective agency
ERA: equal rights amendment
E.T.: Eastern Time
ETA: estimated time of arrival
ETD: estimated time of departure
ETV: educational television
EVA: extra vehicular activity
And, let's not forget the most famous of them all coined by Rachael Ray: EVOO: extra virgin olive oil!
I do hope you have an exceedingly exceptional and exquisite day!
