The E in E-mail
Posted by languageandgrammar on December 27, 2009
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!
