Go for the sweep!
It’s time for another editing and proofreading quiz!
Once again, we test your knowledge of some of the finer points of Chicago style. Each question exemplifies (or restates) a rule or recommendation in The Chicago Manual of Style.
Does the example break the rule, or does it follow it? Take the quiz to find out.
Note that we are looking for answers that reflect Chicago style. In some cases, an incorrect answer would be considered correct according to another style (such as AP or MLA). See the disclaimer below.
Subscribers to The Chicago Manual of Style Online may click through to the linked sections of the Manual (cited in the answers). (For a 30-day free trial of CMOS Online, click here.)
Note: Style guides and dictionaries sometimes disagree. This quiz is designed to test your knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition.
