Hello fellow STC Technical Editing SIG Members! Here's a quick roundup of
the news and articles as we wrap up the year.

I (Michelle Corbin, corbinm at have thoroughly enjoyed bringing you Corrigo via the previous blog-based Web site and now our new wiki-based Web site for the past several years, but it is time for me to pass the torch to our new Managing Editor, Anitha Abraham, at Anitha.Abraham at

Where does only belong?

Corrigo Articles
The Boston Globe publishes a blog called "The Word Blog" where I discovered (via a Twitter post to this blog) an article(external link) about the placement of the word "only" in a sentence. It was fun to see the journalistic view of this grammatical construct (or nit, in the author's words). Where do you fall on where only belongs in a sentence? Is it more than a nit in technical communication?

Author: Meredith Kinder - Published At: July 06, 2009 09:00am EDT -
SIG News
The Technical Editing SIG renamed its scholarship as the Diane Feldman Technical Editing SIG Scholarship.

The scholarship is named in honor of a dear friend of the SIG, Diane Feldman. Diane Feldman is an Associate Fellow of STC and was the manager of the Technical Editing SIG for 7 years. Her exceptional leadership, selfless contributions, and enthusiasm for the SIG and the technical editing profession helped the SIG pull through society changes, managed to successfully re-charter and re-focus the SIG, and ultimately initiated a thriving and growing SIG. She mentored many of the SIG leaders throughout their tenures, leaving a lasting mark on those leaders and their careers.
