BLUFDictionaries and style guides provide descriptions of the English language of how it is most commonly—and should reflect modern usage.
Stephen Johnson writing in Lifehacker makes a number of points some of which are as follows:
- You can end a sentence with a preposition-“Where did this come from?”-is ok to use.
- Beginning a sentence with a conjunction (but, or, and, etc.) is also ok.
- “I before E except after C” is only for words derived from French-use spellcheck to make sure.
- It is now correct to use “they” for people who don’t identify as either “he” or “she.”
- Hyphens are generally out-use only when it would be confusing not to.
