  • Of Clinical Interest To All


    Who would have thought that there are studies, yes, real studies--university type--about just how many spaces should appear after a period in a sentence? It's real and it is an "issue" though perhaps not on the same level as global warming. We here at NJAMFT-IA deal with it on every workshop description, every newsletter article submission and all public documents.  Some clearly prefer 2 spaces and some, 1 space after every period. There are also those who argue that 2 spaces came from the days of the typewriter while 1 space is all that is needed in today's computer world. A fascinating article appeared in this month's Atlantic Monthly entitled "Are Two Spaces Better Than One? The Effect of Spacing Following Periods and Commas During Reading." sharing laboratory studies and professional opinions.
