In keeping with my normal tendency to not participate in the impedance of
language change, indeed, to hasten it in the direction of ease of production
if possible, I use as my regular spelling non-hyphenated _email_ and do,
despite NY Times and the majority of ADS query respondents, use it at
will as a count noun. Haven't had any objection from correspondents yet..
Not only that, but throwing caution to the winds, I regularly spell without
a hyphen or a slash (two current dictionaries show hyphen, two slash)
_CDROM_. I hope that this information does not cause the anal NYTimes
copy editor to suffer a coronary event.
