Italicize this!

Should we italicize non-English words?

For my novel Enlightenment, the answer is no!

Check out this funny Youtube video that reflects the growing non-italicize movement! Non-English words are not inferior to English words. The only words italicized in my novel are words that need emphasis.

See what I did there?

So possible readers, the Visayan and Tagalog words used in my novel will be in the same font as English words. Oh the nerve…
