BYU-Idaho Terminology Guide
This guide contains a list of terminology specific to BYU–Idaho. Since clear communication is essential in everything we do, proper usage of these terms will give consistency and accuracy to written publications, correspondence, displays, and other such items produced by the university.
Academic disciplines often use a particular style guide, such as the
Associated Press Style Guide
for journalists. Please consult with your department head for style preference. Otherwise reference The Chicago Manual of Style
The Gregg Reference Manual
for questions regarding grammar, punctuation, and general writing style that have not been addressed in this guide. No matter what style guide your department prefers, be consistent in applying it throughout the document.
For references relating to terminology used within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the
Style Guide for Publications of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been used with permission.
The standard reference for spelling, definitions, and end-of-line hyphenations is the latest edition of the
Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
