Capitalization

Capitalization does not end with the beginning of a sentence. If you are not sure whether or not to capitalize a word, check the following list.

  • Proper nouns (specific person, place, or thing)
  • Titles of persons used in proper names (Dr., Prof.)
  • First, last, and all major words of titles and subtitles of works
  • First word of a sentence
  • First word of a quoted sentence, unless blended in with the rest of the sentence
  • Abbreviations for departments and agencies, other organizations and corporations, trade names and call letters of radio and television stations.
