alltime or all-time?

  1. I figured that. The place I work at has its own style book, but most of those entries deal with things that are far more area-specific than the AP's stylebook can bother with.
    But what I'm wondering about the Trib is if they have a completely separate stylebook that has nothing to do with AP style. Doesn't -- or didn't -- the New York Times do it that way?

    It's always a compound modifier.

    Always hyphenated.

    Our site does, changing AP's RBIs to RBI being just one example.

    Same here. We have some out-of-state datelines that stand alone. RBI here. Three-pointer as well.

    all-time is hyperbole and shouldn't be used at all.
    Should be career leading scorer

    Time ain't finished yet

    Brilliant! I always prefer career scoring leader to all-time scoring leader.

    As long as no one outscored said all-time leader, it wouldn't matter. :p
