Typography Terms

I was trying to figure out how to adjust the kerning in an an MS Word document when I came across this wonderfully appropriate newer term that is related to kerning.

In 2008, photographer David Friedman coined the term "keming" on his blog, defining it as improper use of kerning. Keming is a visual reference to bad kerning which causes the letter pair "rn" to appear as "m".
