Check Your Balance!
This month’s workout, “Grammar, Part 2,” is taken from CMOS 17, sections 5.20–23. Advanced editors might tackle the questions cold; learners can study sections 5.20–23 of the Manual before answering the questions.
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.)
Note: Dictionaries and style guides sometimes disagree. 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.
[Editors’ note: Chapter 5 of CMOS is quite large, comprising 248 numbered sections on grammar and syntax, plus another hefty chunk on usage. For the sake of variety, we will revisit the chapter periodically in the workouts rather than continuously.]
