Meaning of TBA?

It just occurred to me that the abbreviation TBA can have lots of different meanings such as

  • to be added
  • to be announced
  • to be advised
  • to be arranged
  • to be assigned
  • to be approved
  • to be absorbed
  • to be activated

    Here are my own suggestions as what TBA could stand for:

  • to be achieved
  • to be assured
  • to be able

    What about you? Do you use TBA and if so when?

  • Hi Torsten

    You’ve come up with quite a list of possibilities there!
    What about adding “to be archived”. :lol: :lol:

    Seriously, though, I normally don’t use TBA.
    But if I did, I would only use it for “to be announced”.


    I knew this acronym for to be added( that was my innovation :smiley: )and recently this abbreviation I connected with “Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association” but it has no relation to English.
    Thanks for additional meanings. It’s very useful for me :smiley:
