Word Choice and Usage

This section is a sample of what careful writers consider to be proper word choice and usage. But note that not all writing requires the formality of the “careful writer.” If meaning is clear without applying the careful writer standard and if the piece is informal (such as a blog post or marketing flier), then use editorial judgment on whether to apply these standards. Included here are items specific to the industry, CFA Institute, or simply not easily found in the CMS. For more complete information and examples, see CMS 5.220.
