  n  :  the  presence  of  an  unwanted  signal  via  an  accidental 
  coupling  [syn:  {XT}] 
 
  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  crosstalk 
 
    Interference  caused  by  two  signals  becoming 
  partially  superimposed  on  each  other  due  to  electromagnetic 
  (inductive)  or  electrostatic  (capacitive)  coupling  between  the 
  conductors  carrying  the  signals.  A  common  example  of 
  crosstalk  is  where  the  magnetic  field  from  changing  current 
  flow  in  one  wire  induces  current  in  another  wire  running 
  parallel  to  the  other  as  in  a  transformer.  Crosstalk  can  be 
  reduced  by  using  shielded  cables  and  increasing  the  distance 
  between  conductors.
