I am reading my assigned paper for this week’s Advanced Perception seminar. It is about developing an optical character recognition (OCR) system capable of reading the majority of hand-addressed mail processed by the postal service. They just used the term “levels of sortation” to refer to how much location detail you can get from an address.
Please tell me that sortation isn’t a word. Please. It was as if millions of linguists cried out in terror… and then were silenced.
At least I can take solace in the fact that “sortation” isn’t in the OS X spell checker…
