This month’s workout, “Word Usage, Part 4,” centers on section 5.250 of CMOS 17. Today we focus on words beginning with the letter h. Writing and editing are more efficient when you never have to look up harken or dither over hangar versus hanger.
Advanced editors might tackle the questions cold; learners can study those sections of the Manual before answering the questions. Take your time—some questions are not as simple as they seem!
(Subscribers to The Chicago Manual of Style Online may click through to the linked sections of the Manual. For a 30-day free trial of CMOS Online, click here.)
- These questions are designed to test knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, which prefers Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. Other style guides may follow a different dictionary.
- Although this workout is based on the 17th edition of the Manual, the styles covered in this quiz either are the same as in the 16th edition or were not previously addressed.
