Etymology 1[edit]

Coined by United States Department of Defense in 1986, as a shortening of internetwork, from inter- +‎ network.

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

internet

  1. Alternative letter-case form of Internet; the Internet, the largest global internet.
    • 2013 June 21, Oliver Burkeman, “The tao of tech”, in The Guardian Weekly, volume 189, number 2, page 27:
      The dirty secret of the internet is that all this distraction and interruption is immensely profitable. Web companies like to boast about "creating compelling content", or offering services that let you "stay up to date with what your friends are doing", "share the things you love with the world" and so on.
Usage notes[edit]
  • When referring to the global internet, the term is frequently capitalized: Internet. Over time, however, this is becoming less common.
  • The internet, the World Wide Web, and cyberspace are often erroneously considered synonymous.
