"For more than fifteen years, the manuscript editing department of the Press has overseen online publication of the monthly Chicago Manual of Style Q & A, choosing interesting questions from a steady stream of publishing-related queries from Manual users and providing thoughtful and/or humorous answers in a smart, direct, and occasionally cheeky voice. More than 28,000 followers have signed up to receive e-mail notification when new Q & A content is posted monthly, and the site receives well over half a million visitors annually. But Can I Start a Sentence with "But"? culls from the extensive Q & A archive a small collection of the most helpful and humorous of the postings and provides a brief foreword and chapter introductions. The material is organized into seven chapters that cover matters of editorial style, capitalization, punctuation, grammar and usage, citation and quotation, formatting and other non-language issues, and a final chapter of miscellaneous items. Together they offer an informative and amusing read for editors, other publishing professionals, and language lovers of all stripes."--Publisher's description.
