For Immediate Release Podcast

Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson commented on the helpfulness of  the AP Style Guide during this ten-minute podcast.

For the majority of communications majors the AP Stylebook is the most popular stylebook. There are also many other style guides that are published and used by people in different fields perhaps.

When Hobson stated that the AP Stylebook is helpful but loaded with “Americanisms,” I realized that that is very true. As Americans, we develop a vocabulary that is spurred toward a specific type of new technology, which to foreigners might seem odd.

I want to know more about the major differences between different style guides besides lovely punctuation guidelines and the style guides which are used in specific fields such as business, science, etc.
