interface
user interface

(n) Something that connects two separate entities. For example, a user interface is the part of a program that connects the computer with a human operator (user).

There are also interfaces to connect programs, to connect devices, and to connect programs to devices. An interface can be a program or a device, such as an electrical connector.

(v) To communicate. For example, two devices that can transmit data between each other are said to interface with each other. This use of the term is scorned by language purists because interface has historically been used as a noun.
