Chicago’s Manual Now Online
I thought it as appropriate to go back to my roots for my first post on the new Juxtaprose blog. Coming from a background in print publishing, I like to keep tabs on the world of grammar and usage. I just got a notice that every editor and proofreader's go-to source (the Chicago Manual of Style) is now available in an online version. It isn't free, but if you're an editor, having a searchable version is definitely worth the price. Maybe they say it best:
The bible of the publishing and research community is now available on your desktop. The Chicago Manual of Style Online is completely searchable and easy to use, providing quick answers to your style and editing questions.While there, be sure to check out their Q&A, "as entertaining as it is informative" (this is free, and a very fun read).
