The AP Stylebook has changed E-mail to just email, without the hyphen in the middle! This is a welcomed change, since I’ve typed it that way for years. At least now, I won’t have spell checker point that mistake anymore!
The announcement was first made on Twitter by @apstylebook on March 18th. In the new 2011 edition, you’ll also see updates to smartphone and cellphone, both without spaces between the words. Late last year, they announced another favorite change of mine — the word web site would evolve to website, one word.
If you’re like me, you’ll be happy to nab a copy of the 2011 AP Stylebook, which has these new changes along with many others. Look for it on their website in May –apstylebook.com.
