What’s the best choice: Okay vs. O.K. vs. OK
Which version is “right”? Any one of the three is acceptable. However, whichever one you choose, be consistent by using only that spelling of the word throughout the manuscript.
Personally, I prefer O.K. over OK and okay. OK also is an abbreviation for Oklahoma, so there is the potential for confusion in using that spelling. Okay takes up more space, and my prejudice is against longer versions of a word when shorter versions will do.
Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like San Jose, California, or a small town like Roopville, Georgia, I can provide that second eye.
