    Question "i" used as "I" in articles and editorials


    I have seen that some writers use "i" (lower case "i") when referring to themselves. Is this a new trend? I used to see it in the Op-ed page of a local newspaper, but now I see it even in an article in The Economist. [Edit: Sorry, it is not an article in The Economist. It is an article in one of India's national newspapers.]

    For example, in the article titled The Immensity of India, the writer Adam Roberts, who is the South Asia Bureau Chief of The Economist, also uses the lower case "i".

    Being a foreign writer in India may just be the best job in the world. As The Economist's
    South Asia
    correspondent, my brief is broad — and India is generous back to me. Free to potter in distant corners,
    get to tell the world what

    see going on. Outsiders have a great appetite to know."

    Thank you
