A possible common confusion between electronic, digital and virtual
Over the years I have noticed a common confusion between the terms:
- Digital (something can be electronic but analogue instead of digital)
- Virtual (something can be defined as virtual --- programmatic, but generally doesn't do anything with virtual entities --- software)
I have noticed this phenomenon in several general communications languages (mostly in Hebrew and English).
Did linguists define a similar problem and how do they explain it?
