Word processing is the creation of documents using a word processor. It can also refer to advanced shorthand techniques, sometimes used in specialized contexts with a specially modified typewriter. The term was coined at IBM's Boeblingen, West Germany (at that time) Laboratory in the 1960s.
Famous quotes containing the word word:
“I curse all negative purism that tells me not to use a word from another language that either expresses something that my own language cannot or does that in a more delicate manner.”
—Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (17491832)
