English Style Guide

What is this?

This site is the home of the News Lens Style Guide / English.  It is the final arbiter of spelling, style and other usage. It is based on the English Style Guide of Pajhwok Afghan News, whose work News Lens gratefully acknowledges.

The current versions of all entries, including any comments that have not yet been addressed, are here.

There is one page for each letter. The list is in the left-hand column on every page.

Examples are written in italics.

How to use the Style Guide

The easiest way is to use the Search this site function in the upper right corner.

You can also browse by letter of the alphabet, under Style Guide Entries in the lefthand column.

PLEASE BE AWARE that News Lens uses British spelling for the most part.

To search within a page (say, within the "A" page) use your browser's search function.

How to comment

The Style Guide is open to comment and discussion.  Editing permission is granted only to editors and other key individuals working for News Lens. Comments are moderated.
