It's not a duplicate, that's talking about an acronym, this is asking if it is an abbreviation. –  Matthieu Cartier Jan 12 '11 at 13:02
    
@neurolysis acronyms are a subset of abbreviations. This is simply a less specific version of the other question, and there will be no difference in the answers; it's a dupe. –  DMA57361 Jan 12 '11 at 13:29

The word 'computer' is not an abbreviation, it is the name for an entity which performs computation.
