Leaving No Stone Unturned in the Search for Data
  • Chris Richardson


The linguists in the crowd are certain to grind their teeth while they read this chapter. They would argue the following:

“The technical community leaves no room on their bookshelf for the honorable lexicon. It’s enough that they abuse the use of acronyms as a way to shorten sentences. At their whim, they repurpose terms such as ‘mouse,’ ‘window,’ and ‘scroll.’ They include capital letters in the middle of terms just to identify syllables. Those technical folks can’t even use the term data correctly. Don’t they know that the term data was intended to be used as the plural form of the term datum.
