Editing for Grammarphobes 2.0: Questions?

Every Wednesday, Editing for Grammarphobes 2.0 features handy tips to enhance all of our writing, from daily emails to articles to books. After all, everyone needs to write, right?


I recently received an email from a writer friend of mine. I thought it could be something you might run into with your own writing, so I'm sharing it here today.


Hi Karen,

I'm really enjoying your Grammarphobe posts, but wondered whether you could help me out in advance with a "W" problem! 

I'm getting mixed opinions on whether it is Wi-Fi, WiFi or wifi. Maybe all three are correct in the right place, but this if for a novel. Can you help?

Many thanks in advance.

It's Wi-Fi. Always, no matter what you are writing.

Hope that helps.

Great, I really wasn't sure about that one!
I correct this one a lot for editing clients. Merriam-Webster is my best friend. ;)
