:eÓni­tive spellcheck for an­tisemitism

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

AN­TISEMITISM HAS ap­peared all too fre­quently in the press of late — but how do you ac­tu­ally spell the word? Ac­cord­ing to Danny Stone, direc­tor of the An­tisemitism Pol­icy Trust, it should be writ­ten with­out a hy­phen (as in the JC). In The Times, he ex­plained that “there is no such thing as ‘semitism’ to which you can be ‘anti’ in the way that a per­son might be anti-racist or anti-cap­i­tal­ist.”

The par­lia­men­tary re­port­ing ser­vice Hansard has ac­cord­ingly agreed to amend its spell­ing.
