Andbook* (for And book*)
Scriptio continua has reappeared with the Internet Age: we see it in email addresses and URLs. This can lead to hilarious misunderstandings, though I likely shouldn't share some of the funniest (and rudest) in this blog (do a web search for “awkward URLs” and get ready to cringe).
On the tamer side, the address for the website Choose Spain was www.choosespain.com (I’m not that fond of pain, so perhaps I won’t use them for my next travel plans) and American Scrap Metal was www.americanscrapmetal.com, (now that sounds painful!).
