This question already has an answer here:
I'm not sure whether I should use ORing or OR'ing when referring to the action of applying the Boolean operator OR to two terms. I am a native English speaker and I know that someone would understand what I mean (in the context of computer science), but I am not sure if this is an actual word. I haven't found any meaningful results in a reputable dictionary, though I have seen OR'ing used. My gut feeling is that an apostrophe should be used because it would clearly separate the noun in the word and help the reader identify that this is an unusual word. Another example of this would be how butter is a noun and buttering is a verb meaning to apply the related noun to something; however, this is a commonly used word. Something more unusual, yet feasible, would be mayonnaise'ing (or mayonnaising).
Aside: I lack knowledge of linguistics to beable to include relevant jargon and terms to this question. My instinct is that this question title can be phrased to be more general and helpful to others; if someone has a suggestion to reword the question title to be of more help to others, I would be happy to do so. Also, I tagged this as best as I could and would not be opposed to improving the tagging by suggestions from knowledgeable users.
