# What does “warp” mean in DSP?

I hear the word warp a lot, but cannot quite get a feel for what it really means
I suppose it's literal meaning would be to change in shape, but what does it mean with respect to DSP?
More specifically, I have a DSP chip manual that says a certain parameter adjusts warp for DACs and another one that adjusts warp for ADCs. What does warp mean in this context?
If possible, please explain it without technical jargon.
