- (diff | hist) . . Linguistic prescription; 05:38 . . (+3,834) . . SMcCandlish (Include the actually most common term for this, in the lead. Author: Use the name they published under. CMoS is not an example of house style; expand that paragraph into a complete section; reorganize. Misc. copyedits.)
- (diff | hist) . . Linguistic prescription; 03:41 . . (-26) . . SMcCandlish (→Aims: Copyediting to reduce redundant and useless wording; moderating unsourced, aggrandizing claim of success by someone who's obviously never lived anywhere rural and/or conservative.)
- (diff | hist) . . Linguistic prescription; 03:39 . . (+967) . . SMcCandlish (Five dictionaries and style guides in particular are worth mentioning here (one for historical reasons, and three because they are best-selling and illustrate the trend).)
