I am one of Barbara Nixon’s students, and I appreciated the time you spent talking about AP style. I have switched from a major in English to a major in Journalism/Public Relations, and am AP stupid! I never thought about the different styles of AP or the different spellings of English words (American and British). Thanks for shedding light on the subject.Posted by Tiffany Harris on 02/04 at 09:19 AM
