It’s the Little Differences That Matter
This month we’re doing something a little different. Instead of focusing exclusively on CMOS, this quiz highlights some of the differences between US style and UK style (commonly called British style). But we won’t be quizzing you on trunk versus boot or fries versus chips. Instead, we’ll be looking mostly at the differences in punctuation that come up frequently for editors and proofreaders.
For US style, we’ve relied on The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. (University of Chicago Press, 2017). For British style, we consulted New Hart’s Rules: The Oxford Style Guide, 2nd ed. (Oxford University Press, 2014), among other sources.
