I've already thoroughly debunked the myth that wide sentence spacing comes from the typewriter.
But many myths contain a grain of truth. One might guess that the typewriter was blamed for wide sentence spacing simply because the "habit" survived longer on the typewriter than it did in the print industry. It turns out there's more to it than that. If you don't want to read some of my other blog postings, let me bring you up to speed. First came very wide sentence spacing, at least two or three hundred years of it, in almost every English language publication (and even hand-written letters) of the day. That brings you up to speed on how we lost the extra space between sentences. The Linotype saved time and money for a number of different reasons.

MLA / APA / Chicago Bibliography Composer, Notecards, Outlining. What Is MLA Style? All fields of research agree on the need to document scholarly borrowings, but documentation conventions vary because of the different needs of scholarly disciplines.
MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. MLA style has been widely adopted by schools, academic departments, and instructors for over half a century. The association's guidelines are also used by over 1,100 scholarly and literary journals, newsletters, and magazines and by many university and commercial presses. The MLA's guidelines are followed throughout North America and in Brazil, China, India, Japan, Taiwan, and other countries around the world. APA Style.
