SPH Stylebook.

Updated October 2018

This style guide is intended to help writers, editors, and proofreaders with style as it pertains to all SPH communications, be they electronic or print. It is not intended to replace the Chicago Manual of Style or the BU style guide, which are your initial resources, but to supplement them. Nor is it meant to be a guide for other writing you might produce, be it academic or journalistic.

Generally, Chicago Style applies. Some of the definitions and examples that follow are from Chicago. Examples here are in italics to set them off from the definitions.

Do not rely on existing SPH web page copy for style assistance, as it is often incorrect.
