The Canadian Style: A Guide to Writing and Editing: S2-158/1996E
Revised and Expanded
This Canadian government guide for writers and editors contains standard information on grammar, usage, and punctuation, but with a focus on Canadian editorial issues, for example, in finding unbiased language. This 2nd edition includes discussion of email, plain-language writing, challenges posed by readers of the 1st edition, and how to present French text in English. This guide will be of use to Canadians seeking standards and solutions for writing and editing. It provides concise, up-to-date answers to a host of questions on abbreviations, hyphenation, spelling, the use of capital letters, punctuation and frequently misused or confused words. It deals with letter, memo and report formats, notes, indexes and bibliographies, and geographical names. In this revised and expanded edition, new chapters give techniques for writing clearly and concisely, editing documents, and avoiding stereotyping in communications. There is even an appendix on how to present French words in an English text.
