Documentation

Jim Morrow has a suggestion for the writers of the MLA Handbook:

Suggestion for the next edition of the MLA Handbook for Research and Scholarly Writing: add “hat tip or h/t” to the citation options…

I'm all for adding hat tips to the MLA.

Though I would prefer we abolish the association all together. Students everywhere would join in celebrating.

Then we would all use Turabian. Just like God does.

Only heretics, apostates, witches, and Mac users do MLA.

Switching from APA Style (I was a psych major) to Turabian (which we used at Eden Seminary) was hell on wheels. Now I'm neither going back nor learning another style.

The school I attend in the U.K. uses SBL (Society of Biblical Literature). It's not too bad, really, similar to Turabian in a lot of ways.
