Editor’s Corner: Sub-marines or submarines?

Today I have something for you that may contain a few surprises. It is a list of prefixes and whether or not they should be followed by a hyphen. It’s located in the JHA Training and Internal Documentation Style Guide.

We’ve talked about coworker vs. co-worker before, but I see that we don’t always follow some of these rules with things like cyber-, multi-, and sub-. Use this list as you title documents, name fields, and write other material going forward.

I’ve also included a couple photos from a submarine I went on during vacation. J
