Summary expansion
From Apps to Zombies: A Linguistic Celebration of the Digital World. Composed of 100 bite-sized entries of 400 to 600 words each, 'Netymology' weaves together stories, etymologies and analyses around digital culture's transformation, and creation, of words. The author presents a kaleidoscopic, thought-provoking tour through the buried roots of some of the digital age's most common terms: from the @ and Apple symbols, to HTML and Trojan horses, to the twisted histories of new forms of slang, memes, text messaging and gaming terms
