‘The word crisis is too often used to exaggerate the predicament of a club experiencing hard times.’

Shouldn't crisis be enclosed by inverted commas, in bold or italised? Is this a new trend?

Thanks.

No. Not a new trend. Just bad (well, 'lack of') punctuation. You're right. The writer wrote it incorrectly.

Thanks, Romany, for clearing my doubt.
