We use plain, uncomplicated language whenever possible. But it’s still easy to misuse words. Below is the correct spelling of some of our most commonly used language across sports, levels and audiences.
- Level up
- Video (when talking about the product and its features)
- Film (for more familiar language re: distribution and review)
- Analysis, analytics, stats, data
- Breakdown (noun), break down (verb)
- Sign-up (noun, adjective), sign up (verb)
- Login (noun), log in (verb)
- Game-changer (noun), game-changing (adjective)
- Preseason, postseason, midseason, in-season
- Livestream, livestreaming
- Pre-game, post-game, in-game
And a few more notes to clear the air:
- It’s “American football,” not “American Football.” All sport names should be lowercase.
