Pronounced: high-per-hih-DROH-sis, noun

Yesterday’s word

The word unitasking means “doing one thing at a time”

First usage

This word showed up in the 1980s

Background / Comments

You may have guessed this word due to the similarity to “multitasking”; our word was patterned after “multitaking”, which is the older word (came into usage in the 1960s), with “multi” (many) replace with “uni” (one).
