eSports, e-sports, Esports or esports?

There is no more argument to be had anymore since at this year’s American Copy Editors Society convention, there was an official decision on the capitalization of the word. As it stands, if you want to be grammatically correct, it is time to make the switch to “esports”. This change happened “because of industry trends, and general usage”.

It’s no surprise to anybody that there are grammatical arguments all the time. Esports was a huge buzz word to start said grammatical arguments, especially by us fans of the industry. Although it has been accepted for a while that “esports” was the correct way to spell it, there were still many that clung to the origins as it stood as “eSports”.

 

On that note, the word “internet” and “email” are losing their capitalization and hyphen, respectively.
