Subject: email, e-mail, E mail, etc.
In The Barnhart Dictionary Companion (Vol. 7.4 and 8.1) where these and
related terms are entered there is evidence provided of a wide variety of
spellings, e.g.: e-mail, e mail, Email, EMAIL, E-mail, E-Mail, Email, and
email. On the basis of frequency we chose e-mail as the initial listing.
Dictionaries generally have entered this term as E-mail. "Our records
suggest that by 1984 the preferred form had become e-mail." This applies
both to the noun and verb uses.
