Do I call this drug an opioid or an opiate? Is it gender reassignment or sex reassignment? How literally should I take the AP Stylebook? It can be tough for writers, editors and producers to keep up with changing language in an ever-more dynamic news landscape. In this session, some of the field’s top experts, including two editors of the AP Stylebook, will discuss topical issues of terminology and style and take your questions. Be prepared, also, for an AP style quiz.
