Subject: Re: new phrase
would presumably call for a hyphen and/or cap E. After all it's D-Day, not
dday, g-man (perhaps a better fit, since that's a description like e-mail
rather than a name like D-Day),
Actually, according to _Chicago_, it's D day, not D-Day or D Day (see sec.
7.75) and Webster's Collegiate agrees. AP uses D-Day, however.
personally, I use email. New York Times has deemed it E-mail. go figure.
K rations (not krations),... I think it's
productive, too: I've seen b-day and B-day (for birthday).
