AP Stylebook Removes Hyphen From E-Mail

The AP Stylebook is a guide for determining grammar and word usage in the media. This past Friday, the AP Stylebook said that the abbreviation for “electronic mail” will no longer be “e-mail.” Instead it will be “email.” Last year the AP STylebook changed “Web site” to “website.” “Language evolves. Today we change AP style from e-mail to email, no hyphen. Our editors will announce it at #ACES2011 today,” said the AP Stylebook in a tweet. [Mashable]
