To celebrate the end of another decade, we’ve put together eleven questions designed to test your knowledge of some random editorial facts.
Each question is inspired by something mentioned somewhere in CMOS. But don’t worry: you don’t have to know anything about the Manual to take the quiz. And even if you know nothing about editing or grammar or anything else, you might have some fun guessing which answers are fake. (The correct answers will be explained when you click “Submit.”)
Happy holidays from your friends at The Chicago Manual of Style!
See you in 2020!
What Does an Editor Know?
