Pick up any book from the '80's on learning assembler and you'll be hard pressed to find "assembly" anywhere, especially for MOS 6502, Z80 or MC68000.



My goodness, if you really insist on arguing this point, here are a few books for you.

6502:

Z80:

Donald Knuth calls it 'assembly' in The Art of Computer Programming, which he started to write in the early 1960s.


When I was coding Z80 in the late 80s/early 90s (on the Amstrad CPC) it was always either "assembly language" or "assembler".
