Watch Your Words: The Rowman & Littlefield Language-Skills Handbook for Journalists
Journalists trad in words. Using language accurately, clearly, and consistently is part of their job--and this skill is equally important for writers and editors. Watch Your Words is designed as a handbook for quick and accessible classroom and newsroom use. Consistent with The Associated Press Stylebook, it establishes a baseline for language-skills knowledge in the areas of punctuation, grammar and usages as well as AP style. Self-tests, answer keys, and sections on spelling and copy-editing symbols also are included.
