Today, the 21st-century Associated Press has become the essential global news network. And the AP Stylebook has become the essential tool for anyone who cares about good writing.

The Stylebook is now available in a variety of electronic formats. It continues to add entries that reflect the language of our fast-changing world. Truly, it is a tool now for wired editors as well as wire editors.

But just as the AP remains dedicated to its fundamental journalistic principles, the AP Stylebook remains committed to its original concept: to provide a uniform presentation of the printed word, to make a story written anywhere understandable everywhere. And it is still distilled from a thousand suggestions and ideas, and several big desk and online dictionaries.

Our thanks and appreciation go to those who have helped enrich this book by their questions and suggestions on style. There have also been countless contributions from everyday readers of the news, who share with us a distinct pride in the clarity and precision of language.

They are the accepted reference sources for material not covered by the Stylebook. For federal government questions: Official Congressional Directory; U. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.

Should you capitalize a word? Check the word itself or the capitalization entry. See baseball. Following is a key to the entries:. The first name of an individual and the word international may be deleted from a formal airport name while the remainder is capitalized: John F.

Use whichever is appropriate in the context. Do not make up names, however. There is no Boston Airport, for example. The Boston airport lowercase airport would be acceptable if for some reason the proper name, Logan International Airport, were not used. Entry words, in alphabetical order, are in boldface. They represent the accepted word forms unless otherwise indicated. Alabama Abbrev. See state names. Other abbreviations used in the Stylebook: n. On second reference, the automobile association or the association is acceptable.

Headquarters is in Heathrow, Fla. Use the article an before vowel sounds: an energy crisis, an honorable man the h is silent , an NBA record sounds like it begins with the letter e , an s celebration. Headquarters is in Montvale, N. A few universally recognized abbreviations are required in some circumstances. Some others are acceptable depending on the context.

But in general, avoid alphabet soup. Do not use abbreviations or acronyms that the reader would not quickly recognize. Guidance on how to use a particular abbreviation or acronym is provided in entries alphabetized according to the sequence of letters in the word or phrase.

An acronym is a word formed from the first letter or letters of a series of words: laser light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.

An abbreviation is not an acronym. For guidelines on how to use titles, see courtesy titles; legislative titles; military titles; religious titles; and the entries for the most commonly used titles. Abbreviate company, corporation, incorporated and limited when used after the name of a corporate entity. See entries under these words and company names. See academic degrees. Right: In B. Wrong: Early this a. The abbreviations are correct only with figures.

Right: Early this morning he asked for the number of your room. He lives at Pennsylvania Ave. See addresses.

See state names; datelines; and individual entries. If the entry for such an organization notes that an abbreviation is acceptable in all references or on second reference, that does not mean that its use should be automatic. See second reference. If an abbreviation or acronym would not be clear on second reference without this arrangement, do not use it.

Names not commonly before the public should not be reduced to acronyms solely to save a few words. See individual entries. Generally, omit periods in acronyms unless the result would spell an unrelated word. But use periods in two-letter abbreviations: U. AP, a trademark, is an exception. Also, no periods in GI and EU. Avoid the redundant phrase ABM missiles. A-bomb Use atomic bomb unless a direct quotation is involved.

See Hiroshima. Aborigine Capitalize when referring to Australian indigenous people. Avoid abortionist, which connotes a person who performs clandestine abortions.

Also: an associate degree no possessive. Use such abbreviations as B.
