Copy editor? Copyeditor? Copy editing? Copyediting?

While you could call me a copy editor and I wouldn’t correct you, I’ve chosen to refer to myself as a copyeditor and what I do as copyediting.

I’m a fan of open compounds becoming closed (I’m still waiting on lightbulb; is anyone with me?) and I tend to push them whenever I can.

Plus, my preferred dictionary is headed in the same direction. See this post.
