A simple sorting technique that scans the sorted list, starting at the beginning, for the correct insertion point for each of the items from the unsorted list. Similar to the way people manually sort items, an insertion sort is not efficient for large lists, but is relatively fast for adding a small number of new items periodically. See sort algorithm.
