Q. Just checked the Stylebook, and there is no entry for military occupational specialty, or MOS. Questions: 1) Is MOS acceptable on first reference, or should one start with military occupational specialty? 2) Lower-case or capitalize the first letter of each word? 3) MOS or M.O.S.? Thanks! from Sarnia, XX on Fri, Apr 18, 2014
A. On first reference, spell out lowercase military occupational specialty. On second reference, MOS could be used, though military job or assignment work just as well.
Q. You advised me to hyphenate "Pre-workout" used in a heading. Does this mean "Post workout" should be hyphenated also? Each word stands alone as a heading (no nouns follow). from Chesterfield Townshi, MI on Fri, Apr 18, 2014
A. Yes, see the Stylebook's "post-" entry.
