email/e-mail: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Thursday, March 5, 2015

Although the spelling “email” is extremely popular, some people prefer “e-mail,” which follows the same pattern as “e-commerce.” The E stands for “electronic.”

Paul Brians' latest blog post looks at mistakes and puns using "petal," "pedal," and "peddle."

This is the ten-year anniversary of the Common Errors in English Usage calendar. To celebrate, we are bringing back some of our favorite interesting, funny, but sometimes merely silly entries through the years before going on hiatus in 2016.

Enjoy the calendar? Buy the book!
