New AP Stylebook is Here to Annoy You

The new Associated Press Stylebook is upon us. As indicated in an AP press release, the 2012 version promises to clear up any confusion Brian Setzer Orchestra fans have about using “zoot suit” in a sentence, features an expand section on social media and contains a new portion dedicated to broadcast terms.

If you’re interested in talking about the style changes with AP editors, they’re conducting a Twitter chat today at 2:30 and a Goggle Hangout tomorrow at 2 p.m.

For those of you who enjoy reading about/getting unnecessarily frustrated by grammar, the 2012 AP Stylebook can be ordered online here.
