This post is for all you copyeditors out there who handle mainly scientific and technical material. That’s what I do … except when I’m editing books of ghost stories.
Ye whose stylesheets usually contain terms such as BitLocker drive encryption and Inter-site Topology Generation, look thee now with pleasure on highlights from my most recent words list.
- deathbed, deathwatch
- God; the Devil; but a devil, a demon
- goose bumps
- gravedigger; gravestone; graveyard; but grave marker; grave site
- Maker (as in I’m going to meet my Maker, i.e., God)
Now that’s a spooky stylesheet!
