With the advent of the Internet, many new words and phrases have popped up in our common vocabulary, for example, Web site, on-line, and log on. Along with those new additions has arisen the question of correct spelling. Is it Web site or website, online or on-line, etc?
One of the most commonly used words is e-mail——–or is it email? For this particular word, the problem is easy to solve. E-mail is really just a shorthand way of saying electronic mail, so the correct spelling is with the hyphen, e-mail.
That’s something upon which I’m sure we can all agree—-unless, of course, you think that electronicmail is one word!
