AP Stylebook will make 'internet' lowercase as of June

'Internet' is now 'internet', says AP Stylebook, will be official soon

Traditionally, the word 'internet' is spelled with uppercase, but the AP Stylebook seems to have determined it's become so colloquial that it deserves the less formal lowercase treatment. As of June 1, when the 2016 Stylebook launches, 'internet' will be official.




For the unfamiliar, the AP Stylebook is the premiere grammar style and usage guide for American journalists connected to the Associated Press. However, it's looked to by most organizations and persons outside of the Associated Press as the guide of choice as well.
