Computers are no longer just for specialists. Today, computing is not just a profession and a hobby; it is also a tool used in virtually all human activities. That’s why we’ve compiled this book of background knowledge. Its purpose is to tell you the things other people think you already know. We design this book to have a convenient size so it can be easily carried around. In compiling a book this size, we have had to be selective. The quickest way to identify a word that you can’t find in a book is probably to do a web search (see SEARCH ENGINE). Also, some terms are almost always abbreviated, and in that case you should look for the abbreviation rather than the full term. Much has changed since the first edition of this book was published more than twenty years ago. New terms are being invented every day. We regularly update the book, and this edition contains new entries on a variety of topics including Windows Vista and Mac OS X. We’ve also cut out material that was showing its age. Terms are marked slang or humorous if they are seldom used in serious writing. They are marked as jargon if, in our estimation, they are somewhat pretentious new names for old concepts and are not likely to endure. We provide occasional Usage notes to explain grammar, spelling, and proper use of words, such as the exact difference between disc and disk. Throughout, we use SMALL CAPITALS to mark important words that are defined elsewhere in this book. By following cross-references, you can quickly find many entries that pertain to whatever interests you. Here are some entries you may wish to start with to learn about particular topics: • Internet culture: CHAT ROOM • right and wrong: COMPUTER ETHICS • safe computing: COMPUTER SECURITY • solving exceptionally difficult problems: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE • productively using computers in business and daily life: APPLICATION PROGRAM • listening to music: DIGITAL MUSIC • taking pictures: DIGITAL CAMERA • creating web pages: HTML • writing computer programs: PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE • software that controls a computer: OPERATING SYSTEM • how a computer works: COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE • networking and the Internet: INTERNET • connecting computers wirelessly: WIRELESS COMMUNICATION • electronic components: TRANSISTOR Be sure to notice the visual dictionary of symbols at the end of the book. If you don’t know what Σ or ≈ or • is called, don’t worry; you can look it up there. All four of us want to thank The University of Georgia and Seattle Pacific University for access to facilities and for accommodating us as we worked on the project. We also want to thank Robert Downing for help with 1960s data processing terminology; Sharon Covington for help with current Internet culture; and Brantley Coile of Coraid, Inc., for permission to adapt material from Coraid’s glossary of networking and data storage. Many of the words used in this book are registered trademarks. We have made no attempt to determine or report their legal status.

Dutch is a West Germanic language that is spoken in the European Union by about 23 million people as a first language-including most of the population of the Netherlands and about sixty percent that of Belgium-and by another 5 million as a second language. It is the third most widely spoken Germanic language, after German and English. Dutch is the native language of the majority of the population of Suriname, and also holds official status in Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten, which are constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Historical minorities on the verge of extinction remain in parts of France and Germany, and in Indonesia, while up to half a million native speakers may reside in the United States, Canada and Australia combined. The Cape Dutch dialects of Southern Africa have evolved into Afrikaans, a mutually intelligible daughter language which is spoken to some degree by at least 16 million people, mainly in South Africa and Namibia. Dutch is one of the closest relatives of both German and English and is said to be roughly in between them. This English / Dutch Dictionary of Computer and Internet terms contains 24,000 word pairs in each language along with the part of speech. It is derived from our Words R Us system, a derivative of WordNet. WordNet can be viewed as both a combination of dictionary and thesaurus. The English Wordnet, originally created by Princeton University is a lexical database for the English language. It groups words in English into sets of synonyms called synsets, provides brief definitions and usage examples, and records a series of relationships between these sets of synonyms.
