What is the difference between ‘input’ and ‘imput’?
Input’ a noun. ‘Imput’ an old-fashioned or informal verb.
I’m not sure what the question is asking for but there is a difference between input and imput. The past tense of the word input is “inputted.” The word imput doesn’t have any kind of past tense at all because it’s just an outdated, sexist borrowing from the French word, “emputé”. This same mistake was made with the words for “impress” (a noun) and to impress someone (verb), among many other examples in English that followed suit from French verbs ending with -er, even if they came originally from Latin instead of French.
Input (noun) refers to something that is used to make a system or machine function; the information given in order to calculate a desired output. Imput (verb) is not typically used, but it can be interchangeable with ‘input’.
Input cannot be entered into an input field in your browser if you wish the page to load. You must use imput instead for this purpose. Alternatively, you can press enter on your keyboard and this will often also work as input by opening up an input box below the cursor where you can type in text such as google.com.
Input’ is usually used with the verb input, and it means to enter data or information into a program.
Whereas ‘imput’ is not usually used in this way, and it only sometimes means to enter places of business; so meaning activity done on a device as opposed to supplying said device with power.
It can also mean “making an impression” e.g., the feeling left by some household cleaning detergent on one’s hand can leave an imput; however, this word is rarely used outside of these two exceptions. It sounds like you are looking for the noun form, which would be “input”. Hope this helps! 🙂
Input refers to the data, or “stuff” that is being input into a given process.
Imput refers to the process of giving input on something, or as in this case, typing in input for your question.
The two words have different meanings but they share some letters so people often get confused and think they are interchangeable with one another. The two words function quite differently from one another though. Input is objective while imput is subjective; we can assume that someone’s cell phone must be broken if it demands an explanation such as “input.” You cannot really make any assumptions about what happens when you click on a cell phone image directing you to enter information when all instruction text reads like “imput.”
Input can be used as a verb or noun. As input is a noun, it refers to the information that you provide into something like a survey, so “we do not have recent data on the input of slaves into the U.S.”
When using ‘input’ as a verb, it means providing information somewhere like an electronic system for recording personal details (such as age), and someone is asked to input all their personal details.
‘Imput’ typically only refers to providing information in some sort of electronic system or onto an item: “please imput password”.
Input is the raw data that is the basis of an equation. It’s a measure of effort, intensity and satisfaction. Imput measures what you are inputting into the equation.
