AP Stylebook Finally Changes “website to website”
Posted by:Maya Tao
I would like to share an article written by Adam Ostrow from mashable.com regarding AP Stylebook recent modifications, such as changing “website” to “website,” and “e-mail” to “email.” Check out the new online version Here: AP Stylebook
This might not mean much if you’re not writing or editing a tech blog, but news that the AP – whose stylebook is still the standard for all things grammar and punctuation in the news world — is officially changing “website” to “website” was met with a warm reception in our newsroom (and likely quite a few others) this afternoon.
We’d actually gone rogue on the issue ourselves several months ago, thinking that “website” was a rather antiquated way for describing “a computer connected to the internet that maintains a series of web pages on the World Wide Web.”
