Webster's New World College Dictionary

Webster's New World College Dictionary

The AP Stylebook and OSU recommend Webster's New World College Dictionary for spelling and definitions. For spelling, generally the first choice offered is the one to use.

AP Style Tip

AP style does not use the serial comma in a simple series. This means that in order to stay within OSU brand guidelines, instead of writing, "Benny likes Star Wars, Star Trek, and Stargate," you'd write, "Benny likes Star Wars, Star Trek and Stargate." There's no comma before "and Stargate" in the style OSU uses.

internet or Internet?

As of June 1, 2016, the AP Stylebook calls for "internet" to be written with a lowercase 'i' (except at the start of a sentence), which means we use a lowercase 'i' to stay within OSU brand guidelines. This is a change from the previous guide, which called for internet to be capitalized.
