This is the Styletips project, which provides useful advice to editors on writing style and formatting in bite-size chunks from the Manual of Style and related pages. For the complete schedule of Styletips, see below.

Please place suggestions on the Talk page. The objective is to keep the focus of each tip narrow and to express it simply and briefly.

US or U.S.?


In American English, U.S. (with points) is more common as the standard abbreviation for United States, although The Chicago Manual of Style now deprecates the use of the periods (16th ed.). US (without points) is generally accepted in most other national forms of English.
