With over 200 terms from Advent to Zionism, The Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law now includes a separate chapter on religion, along with new entries including relaxing one of writing’s longest standing rules to accept use of “more than” and “over” interchangeably in numerical references.

Stylebook editors worked with AP religion writer Rachel Zoll to create the new chapter, which pulls in some existing terms from the Stylebook’s A-Z entries and adds many new ones, covering the world’s major denominations.

At more than 500 pages, the AP Stylebook is widely used as a writing and editing reference in newsrooms, classrooms and corporate offices worldwide.

In addition to the religion chapter, the 2014 edition features updated science and medical terms including HPV, in vitro fertilization and MERS.

The 2014 Stylebook also includes new guidance on spelling out state names in text.

Among the 200 new and revised entries are: selfie, (sic), bitcoin, LGBT and polar vortex.

AP publishes a new spiral-bound Stylebook each spring. Basic Books publishes a perfect-bound paperback AP Stylebook every other year.

Edited by Darrell Christian, Paula Froke, David Minthorn and Sally Jacobsen.
