|English term or phrase: swipe|
|Swipe is defined in Webster’s as “to strike or wipe with a sweeping motion”.|
Swipe is now used to describe the sweeping action made when passing a credit card through a reading device. When the finger touches the center part of a sensor pad and is moved towards the outer part of the pad while keeping contact with the pad, the unit receives a certain command. The movement must be rapid for the command to be received correctly.This is a new way of giving commands to equipment, so I either need to create a new word or attach a slightly different meaning to an existing word.
