Things I’ve Learned Today

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

Things I’ve learned from the 2013 Associated Press Stylebook:

1. It is still proper to use “the” before “Rev.”
2. The word “linoleum” is no longer trademarked. 
3. The use of the word “parishioner” is OK when speaking of members of the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches. However, for non-hierarchical Protestant denominations, use of the word is a no-no.
