All the more reason to use an approach that treats wiki words with
only one lower case letter as plain text and to recognise a ` prefix.
Using a wikiwordcount is not really a systematic way of dealing with
abbreviations, as there will always be ones missing from the list.
The markup extensions do this, but a quick fix is to add the following
to the config.php file:
## prevent wikiwords with only one lower case letter
An author can still make a link using [[TLAs]].
It's arguably more natural for an author to think 'I want to make
this a link' than 'I want to prevent this from being a link'. In
my experience, people don't think about things like abbreviation
plurals being wiki words until they see the annoying new page
