Word of the Week: Axis

As in: “The Internet has caused a similar disruption of the field’s professional axis.”

Ryfe, D. M. (2012). Can journalism survive? An inside look at American newsrooms. Cambridge, UK: Polity Press, p. 148.

For a plethora of definitions of axis that would make any writer happy, see the Oxford English Dictionary.
