Like most professional occupations, writing and publishing have
their own languages. An experienced author/publisher can quickly
lose a newbie with a torrent of acronyms, insider terms, technical
jargon, contractions, and colloquial speech. At ScribeCount we make
a concentrated effort to keep our publications free of jargon and to
speak to the reader in language that any aspiring author will easily
There are times, however, when this is unavoidable. So we made this
book to help you out. It’s a comprehensive list of terms used in
writing, publishing, physical printing, and digital publishing.
Author Lingo is your easy-to-use, insider guide.
