Startup or Start Up? Which one is the correct spelling? Or we can use both the words at present scenario.
awesome q manish - once upon a time i looked it up to decide which spelling we should follow on therodinhoods :)))))))))
different publications use it differently. i have not come across any standardisation. but i'll look fwd to what the others have to say...!
thank you for asking this!!!!
There is no standard rule - startup and start-up are both valid. There isn't always a 'perfect' route in English. This reminds me of that very old debate:
1. Charles's operation; or
2. Charles' operation
Which one is correct? Strictly speaking, they are both valid.
If one were to go into finer detail, then:
1. 'Start-up' implies that two different words are being combined to convey a singular thought; whereas
2. 'Startup' implies that it is a word in itself.
At the end, it makes no difference at all.
If a member of audience raises objection over correct usage, he is clearly bored and wants to piss you off.
