Sticklers unite.

The new AP Stylebook is out. The 55th edition, if you are counting. And you could be.

The latest entries center around references to the Asian-American community and groups formed to combat anti-Asian discrimination.

Other new entries include, but are not limited to:

Antiviral
Anti-vaxxer
Long-hauler

We note that in the cases of anti-vaxxer and long-hauler, the AP still resists the general admonition in Strunk and White’s, The Elements of Style, to lean against the use of hyphenation.

We will continue to update you on this story as developments warrant. We have a crew on the scene, or at least headed to the scene, and it is a story we will be watching closely. As it unfolds.
