2013 AP Stylebook

The Journalist's "Bible"

The AP Stylebook is marking its 60th anniversary with the 2013 print edition, which includes nearly 100 new or updated entries and broadens the guidelines on social media.

At about 500 pages, the AP Stylebook is widely used in newsrooms, classrooms and corporate offices worldwide. More than a dozen of the new entries are in the sections on food (such as Benedictine and Grand Marnier, madeleine and upside-down cake) and fashion (chichi and froufrou), as well as new numerals and weapons sections, new entries on mental illness and illegal immigration, and an expanded social media chapter.

Among other new and revised entries are: Advent, Alaska Native, Asperger’s syndrome, athletic trainers, disabled/handicapped, doughnut, dumpster, ethnic cleansing, homicide/murder/manslaughter, moped, populist, rack/wrack, red carpet, swag, underway, wacky and wildfires.

Edited by Darrell Christian, Sally Jacobsen and David Minthorn.
