Shorthand

Bond fans use an abbreviated shorthand to discuss their favorite films. If you’re new to fan discussion, you may be confused by all the capital letters being bandied about, so here’s a handy alphabetical guide:

  • AVTAK: A View to a Kill
  • CR: Casino Royale (Note: Unless the context makes it obvious, it is helpful to use CR ’54, CR ’67, or CR ’06.)
  • DAD: Die Another Day
  • DAF: Diamonds Are Forever
  • DN: Doctor No
  • FRWL: From Russia With Love
  • FYEO: For Your Eyes Only
  • GE: GoldenEye
  • GF: Goldfinger
  • LALD: Live and Let Die
  • LTK: Licence to Kill
  • MR: Moonraker
  • NSNA: Never Say Never Again
  • OHMSS: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
  • OP: Octopussy
  • QOS: Quantum of Solace
  • TB: Thunderball
  • TLD: The Living Daylights
  • TMWTGG: The Man With the Golden Gun
  • TND: Tomorrow Never Dies
  • TSWLM: The Spy Who Loved Me
  • TWINE: The World Is Not Enough
  • YOLT: You Only Live Twice

And then there are actors:

  • DC: Daniel Craig
  • GL: George Lazenby
  • PB: Pierce Brosnan
  • RM: Roger Moore
  • SC: Sean Connery
  • TD: Timothy Dalton
