Abstract:

Each year writers and editors submit over three thousand grammar and style questions to the Q & A page at The Chicago Manual of Style Online. Some are arcane, some simply hilarious-and one editor, Carol Fisher Saller, reads every single one of them. All too often she notes a classic author-editor standoff, wherein both parties refuse to compromise on the "rights" and "wrongs" of prose styling: "This author is giving me a fit." "I wish that I could just DEMAND the use of the serial comma at all times." "My author wants his preface to come at the end of the book. This just seems ridiculous to me.
