Abstract

One of the main problems getting in the way of the effective use of computers is the language barrier. A new language has developed alongside the development of the computer. This new language contains numerous words and expressions which are given a different meaning than the normal accepted meaning. This, together with many new words and acronyms, has given birth to a jargon-initiated language that only the computermen fully understand.
