  1. FAQ

    Frequently asked questions are listed questions and answers, all supposed to be commonly asked in some context, and pertaining to a particular topic. "FAQ" is usually pronounced as an initialism rather than an acronym, but an acronym form does exist. Since the acronym FAQ originated in textual media, its pronunciation varies; "fack", "faak", "fax", and "facts" are commonly heard. Depending on usage, the term may refer specifically to a single frequently asked question, or to an assembled list of many questions and their answers. Some web page designers may label the list of questions as "FAQ," such as on Google.com websites and others as "FAQs," such as on United States Treasury sites.

Some people prefer the term ‘FAQ list’ or ‘FAQL’ /fa´kl/, reserving ‘FAQ’ for sense 1.This lexicon itself serves as a good example of a collection of one kind of lore, although it is far too big for a regular FAQ posting. Examples: “What is the proper type of NULL?” and “What's that funny name for the # character?” are both Frequently Asked Questions. Several FAQs refer readers to the Jargon File.
