On my Voice-Over Friends Group on FaceBook, Arlene Cooke points to a NY Times article discussing a list of certain words that are being cycled OUT of the Times’ style book, and apparently the acronym ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) is one of them.
‘Just another reason never to read the NYT in my book.
But in case you’d like to see their reasoning, you can read The Latest in Style by Philip Corbett here.
BTW, ISDN never caught-on here as it has in Europe, where it’s still a mainstay in most systems. For more about ISDN, read any of the many articles in this blog on the subject, by enterng the search string ISDN in the dialogue box at the top right of this page.
