AP Stylebook Figures Out It’s email, Not e-mail

Finally, the AP Stylebook has changed the style guidelines for the word email. Until today, they were demanding a hyphen, making it “e-mail”. Very 1990s.

Other changes include:

  • Cellphone is now one word, not two.
  • The Indian city Calcutta is now Kolkata.
  • Smartphone also gets to be a single word, and is defined as ” an advanced cellphone that allows for email, Web browsing and downloadable applications.”
