Etymology[edit]

(1986) Coined by the U.S. Defense Department, shortening of internetwork.

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Internet

  1. The specific internet consisting of a global network of computers that communicate using Internet Protocol (IP) and that use Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to identify the best paths to route those communications.
    • 2008, Lou Schuler, "Foreward", in Nate Green, Built for Show, page xi
      [] if you think the Internet existed in 1970, I can only guess that the education system has left at least one child behind.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Usage in reference to the global network is normally capitalised, reserving internet with a lower-case i for any other set of computer networks connected by internetworking. However, popular usage (e.g. BBC and Timesonline) increasingly spells it with a lower-case i.
