Definition

HyperTalk is a high-level programming language created in 1987 by Dan Winkler and used in conjunction with Apple Computer's HyperCard hypermedia program.

The main target audience of HyperTalk was beginning programmers, hence HyperTalk programmers were usually called authors, and the process of writing programs was called "scripting".

HyperTalk scripts are fairly similar to written English, and use a logic structure similar to the Pascal programming language.
