Other polytopes
Some can be found here: https://bendwavy.org/klitzing/explain/_ ... d-ones.htm
    Expanded dodeca-augmented great rhombicuboctahedron - Exdaugirco
    Rhombi-propello-icosahedron - Rhoprike
    Triaconta-augmented rhombicosidodecahedron - Trisirco
    p12-h4 - Trutdu
    Chamfered Tetrahedron - Chatet
    Chamfered Cube - Chube
    Chamfered Octahedron - Choct
    Chamfered Dodecahedron - Chadoe
    Chamfered Icosahedron - Chike

Hopf Polyhedra
Explanation here: http://www.polytope.net/hedrondude/twisters.htm
    Hopf Tetrahedron - Hoftet
    Hopf Cube - Hofube
    Hopf Octahedron - Hofoc
    Hopf Dodecahedron - Hodoe
    Hopf Icosahedron - Hoike

Non-regular versions of regulars or uniform polytopes with different symmetries
    Tetratetrahedron - Tatet
    Snub tetrahedron - Snat
    Catalan dodecahedron (dual of Snat)- Catadoe
    Catalan cube (dual of Tatet) - Catacube
    Truncated triangle - Trit
    Truncated square - Tasq
    Snub square - Snasq
    Rhombic square - Rasq
    Tetrahedral cuboctahedron / Tritruncated tetrahedron - Tritret
    Tetrahedral truncated octahedron / Trirectified tetrahedron - Triret
    Pyritohedral icosahedron - Pyrike
    Pyritohedron - Pyrdoe

Polygon Compounds
It is a combination of a number prefix and the acronym for the said polygon.
For example, tritrig is a compound of 3 triangles and disquare is the compound of 2 octagons. After tri, we have different prefixes.
Here they are
    2 - Di
    3 - Tri
    4 - Qi
    5 - Pei
    6 - Sei
    7 - Hei
    8 - Oei
    9 - Noi
    10 - Doi
For higher numbers just add them together.
For example, a compound of 27 squares is heidisquare.

First take an already existing acronym. Then you put this before it {xy[sup]}. x represents the number of stellations. 1 means no stellation. The [sup]y[sup] represents the order of stellation. Here's how it works.
1 - Stellating: Replaces edges with larger edges in the same line.
2 - Greatening: Replaces faces with larger faces in the same plane.
3 - Aggrandizing: Replaces cells with larger cells in the same realm.
And so on.
Here are a few examples.
Great dodecahedron - {2[sup]2[/sup}doe
Escher solid - {2[sup]1
Tetrahemihexacron - {21}cube

This is simple. Cu means conjugation. e.g. cu teddi is targi

You are welcome to make up your own acronyms. Even when going close to Jonathan's building principles.
But when calling yours as "Bower's acronyms", you truely should have asked him first whether he would like to support yours.

Esp. as yours partly are just reductions to sylables. Whereas he rather uses mostly just single character acronyms for any of the longname components, and thereafter fills in some vowels again, to get the acronym pronounciable.
Building principles of additional ones should go as close as possible to already existing ones.
Moreover one would have to check whether potential clashes with already existing acronyms might occur.
Other polytopes
Can be found here: https://bendwavy.org/klitzing/explain/_ ... d-ones.htm
    Expanded dodeca-augmented great rhombicuboctahedron - Exdogirco
    Rhombi-propello-icosahedron - Rhopike
    Triaconta-augmented rhombicosidodecahedron - Trasirco
    p12-h4 - Trutdu
Note - Cu means conjugate ex: co teddi is targi.

"Exdogirco" more looks like a 10D triprism from a 600-cell (ex), a dodecahedron (d(-oe/-o)), and a great rhombicuboctahedron (girco).

Augmentation so far rather was abreviated by the sylable "au". 12-augmentation mostly got the sylable "twau".

"Trasirco" definitely is already in use for the 5D duoprism of a triangle (t(-ra/-a/-i)) and a small rhombicuboctahedron (sirco).

By hand I do not know whether already there is some settled shortening for "triaconta" (=30).
Neither for the "propello" operation. At least the "p" already is in use for "penta-", for "prismato-", and for "petated". Therefore Jonathan mostly aims to differentiate those usages by an according choice of the to be inserted vowel. "pe/pi" usually is penta-, "pi/pa" is prismato-, and "pu/po" is petated.

If you would refer to a truncated dual of the truncated tetrahedron, then it would be more like "t"-"du"-"tut", kind a "tidutut". But then p12h24 happens to be just an equal edge length variant therefrom.

Did you want to say "Note - Cuo means conjugate, exg: co teddi is targi."? or rather "Note - Cu means conjugate, exg: cou teddi is targi."? - At least "co" already is in use for the cuboctahedron. Thus "co teddi/coteddi" would rather be defined as to be a 6D duoprism from the cuboctahedron (co) and the tridiminished icosahedron (teddi).
