you may install wtf  (part of bsd-games package) and query
aboutthis acronym 
dnf install /usr/bin/wtf
IANAL: I am not a lawyer
I did not know that was a thing but I'm happy to know it now.
To save some time in case someone else is curious and ends up going
down the same rabbit hole I did:
There is a maintained upstream for bsd-games  that has effectively
forked the old codebase and trimmed out some of the bits which are not
quite games including wtf (the readme says "outdated acronym lookup. We
have Google now."). However, the fedora package doesn't appear to built
from the new upstream, still using 2.17 as a base which still has wtf
instead of the new upstream's 3.x.
The ftp site that is often credited for being the upstream url for
bsd-games  isn't working for me at the moment but I don't know if
that's just temporary.
There is a sourceforge project  which mirrors NetBSD's updates to
the wtf acronym database. That acronym database in NetBSD  is still
regularly updated and the sourceforge project is still seeing updates.
