I've been wanting to make another one of these :)

My Prefix is an abbreviation of the whole word

Which consists of just a few letters

My Infix can be many things

But it is also an abbreviation for 3 different words

My Suffix is something that you may find on the streets (If you're lucky)

But of course, you need to add a letter to it before that happens

To clarify :

What I meant by the forth line (Abbreviation of 3 different words) is like, for example, STR for Strength, String, Strung --> Just pretend that those are correct. The abbreviations has to be correct, though, for the riddle :D

Hint :

The word is something everyone will always gain

  • $\begingroup$ I find these abbreviation rileys a little bit more tricker than the usual ones :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 2 '18 at 13:19

    $\begingroup$ I know right. A word suddenly came across my mind and I made this new abbreviation riddle :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 2 '18 at 13:29
  • $\begingroup$ 3-letter abbreviations in particular don't really narrow it much more than "it has 3 letters". If you take three random letters and look them up, the chances are very high that it's an existing TLA for one or several things. $\endgroup$ – jafe Sep 2 '18 at 14:08
  • $\begingroup$ No I meant that it can be an abbreviation of 3 things like for example (str for strength, stringth, strungth --> just pretend those are english words ). Btw, just edited my post, thanks for hinting that out :) @jafe $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 2 '18 at 14:10

This could be a long shot, but is it

EXPERIENCE

My Prefix is an abbreviation of the whole word

Which consists of just a few letters

EXP is an abbreviation for EXPERIENCE.

My Infix can be many things

PER has many definitions, such as

The apples are $1 PER pound.

Send it PER express mail.

I made it PER your instructions.

But it is also an abbreviation for 3 different words

PER is short for words such as PERCENTILE, PERIOD, and PERSON.

My Suffix is something that you may find on the streets (If you're lucky)

But of course, you need to add a letter to it before that happens

ENCE, add P to make PENCE

Hint

You gain experience by accomplishing tasks.

  • $\begingroup$ The infix part is incorrect but you got the answer :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 3 '18 at 2:27
  • $\begingroup$ You also haven't answered the hint $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 3 '18 at 2:34
  • $\begingroup$ Don't forget to also answer the third line. It has a different meaning from the forth line :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 3 '18 at 5:22
  • $\begingroup$ OK all correct :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 4 '18 at 2:46
