bitrates

I've seen this word several times recently. It does *not* rhyme with
those things you don't want in your wine (nitrates). It is a compound
word formed from "bit" and "rate," referring to data transfer speeds,
etc.

Just when you thought it was safe to drop the hyphens, a coworker comes
along with this neologism (which, btw, causes my spell checker to flag
it as an error).

Just thought you'd like to be kept abreast of new word developments!

Carry on.
