What is 4n6 short for?


4n6 is short for "forensics." You're most likely to see this abbreviation used by people discussing digital forensics or the art of forensics (public speaking and debate).

Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science focused on the recovery and analysis of data found on digital devices - such as PCs and mobile phones. Because digital forensic investigators are computer- and chat-savvy, they sometimes abbreviate their field's name to digital 4n6.

Regular ol' forensics encompasses the study and practice of public speaking and debate. High schools, colleges, and forensics associations hold forensics tournaments in which speakers are judged on their content, delivery, and adherence to tournament guidelines. Because forensics participants are linguistically-minded, they sometimes abbreviate their field's name to 4n6.
