AIUI

What does AIUI stand for?

As I understand it

AIUI is an acronym that stands for “as I understand it.” It’s a phrase people use when they’re sharing their viewpoint or interpretation of something.

People often use AIUI when they are not completely confident about the accuracy of their understanding. It’s a way to express an opinion while acknowledging that they might be mistaken.

Another reason people use AIUI is out of courtesy. Even when someone is confident they’re right, they might use AIUI to be respectful and not appear arrogant or overbearing. It’s similar to the more widely used term AFAIK, which stands for “as far as I know”.
