Synopsis: Copyediting: A Practical Guide confronts all the major problems most copyeditors face, together with such diverse aspects as word transposition, what to do with artwork, and how to handle permissions. It covers topics such as proofreading symbols, punctuation and grammar, style and word usage, typemarking and keying, specialization, and getting work. The book can be used as a learning tool, a supplement to a style manual, or as a reference for experienced copyeditors. In addition, authors can use it to edit their material, university students can use it to polish their theses, and all other with the urge to write can use it to improve their work.

Review: "Every item intended for reading should be copyedited," says Karen Judd: books and periodicals, of course, but also appliance instructions and menus. Strange, then, that Judd's Copyediting is one of the few resources on the subject, but no matter. It's a terrific guidebook. Judd takes on all aspects of copyediting with startling authority, from copyediting symbols to advice on getting work. Intervening chapters cover punctuation and grammar, spelling, style and word usage, numbers and abbreviations, specialized copyediting, proofreading, and more. "Copyeditors ... know that Massachusetts is a commonwealth, not a state," says Judd. "They would know exactly how to address the pope if they met him. They don't mind going back over 1,000 manuscript pages because they have just decided to spell out numbers up to 100 after all." While they need not be good spellers or trivia buffs, they need to know when to look up a word or fact. And, though copyeditors tend to be stringent about the uses and abuses of language, "Copyediting means doing what the publisher wants, whether you agree with it or not." --Jane Steinberg
