Today I’d like to talk about the word I just stumbled upon in the dictionary: METADATA.
Stumbled upon = tidak sengaja menemukan.
Metadata is defined as “data that provides information about other data”.
It’s a relatively new word that is first used in 1983.
‘Metadata’ is a plural noun, but can be singular or plural in construction.
The word is commonly used in the field of science and technology.
A great example of metadata in everyday life is library catalogue.
‘Data’ is plural form of ‘datum’ which means “what is given”.
