Fewer Hyphens! Updated MC Editorial Style Guide Now Available

Category: Features

Published: Oct 27 2017 12:00AM

Say goodbye to the hyphen in "e-mail" when writing a College document. The newly updated Editorial Style Guide, available on the College's Creative Services web pages, adopts the more common, nonhyphenated, "email" moniker for electronic mail.

Right now you might be saying, "What? I was supposed to be using a hyphen for that word?" Well, yes, according to the College's previous editorial style guides, which have been largely based on the gold-standard Chicago Manual of Style. The manual still has the hyphen in "email," but we felt the time had come to officially adopt the nonhyphenated form that the majority of our students and employees (and just about everyone else) uses.

In addition to the "email" change, the updated Editorial Style Guide has these other changes or additions:
* advisor (no longer adviser)
* MyMC (no space)
* Style Dos and Don'ts
* updated List of Names (Names at a Glance: Departments and Special Programs)
* new Capitalization section
* FAQs
* More usage examples ("right" and "wrong")
* removal of outdated terms

We hope you'll check out the new editorial guide on the
<a href="" target="_blank">website</a>.

While there, please note the other tools you can use to keep your materials looking fresh and in sync with the new MC brand, including logos, templates for memos and PowerPoint presentations, email signatures, and more.

Don't forget the Creative Services team is ready to help with your project. Just visit the <a href="" target="_blank">creative services section of the website</a> to get started.
