Initialisms have been all the rage since WW2, and some of them are used as verbs.
Some common ones are OD, CGI, RSVP, SMS.
I’ve seen various ways of writing the past forms of these. RSVPed seems common but some people go for RSVP’d. I don’t think I’ve encountered ODed in the wild: OD’d seems common. ODd would just look, well, odd. SMSed appears to be more common than SMS’d.
I have seen five different versions of the past form of CGI, and perhaps this instability reflects the fact that its use as a verb is quite new.
Was he CGIed to be skinny in the first bit then? Seamless if so.
I swear that he’s CGI’d he’s that damn good
They CGId me in the altogether.
because if they CGI’ed it all they’d probably do it in-house
Remember this? Now, it’s CGI-ed!
Question: what do the well respected style gurus recommend? What do you prefer?
