This month’s workout, “Plurals,” centers on CMOS 17, paragraphs 7.5–15. Advanced editors might tackle the questions cold; learners can study paragraphs 7.5–15 of the Manual before answering.
(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.)
- 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.
- These questions are designed to test knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, which prefers Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11th edition. Other style guides may follow a different dictionary.
