AP Style: Workforce as one word
Not sure how this one got by me, but tucked into the changes in AP's 2011 Stylebook is one I've urged for years -- workforce as one word instead of work force, a form that newsrooms and others increasingly were ignoring anyhow.
So thanks for the change, AP. The world is once again safe for democracy.
Now let's work on the equally arcane and increasingly ignored under way in favor of underway (which AP as of this writing still reserves for the nautical sense: "an underway flotilla").
