As I may have mentioned on this list a few times (:-), there's new technology that supports the writing and running of applications in Executable English (EE).
If you use abbreviations and acronyms in EE, its clear what they mean from the human readable context that is also executable.
Of course this does not solve your problem of acronyms in unreadable legacy COBOL code, but it does suggest that such code could usefully be reverse engineered into EE, rather than into non-executable English text that is then subject to interpretation by fallible human readers other than the authors.
Cheers, -- Adrian
