AP Stylebook kicks the “-” out of email


In May, 2010, I wrote about the change in the Associated Press Stylebook from Web site to website.  At the time, they still clung to the hyphen in e-mail but earlier this month they threw it under the bus. The correct spelling is now “email,”  although the hyphen lingers in words like e-reader. Smart phone is two words and fan, friend and follow can be used both as nouns and verbs.  The AP also announced social media guidelines, summarized here by Mashable.
