#EngTips: Capitalization

Hello, fellas! How’s your weekend? Today’s session will discuss some rules that are related to capitalization. Capitalization is the action of writing a word with uppercase for the first letter and lowercase for the remaining letters. Let’s check some rules of capitalization below.

  1. Capitalize the first word of every sentence.
    • Example:
      • I’m happy you gave me a huge bouquet of roses. Jim, you really pull out all the stops.”
  2. Capitalize the first-person singular pronoun, I.
    • Example:
      • I want to eat apple.”
      • “Where did I put the book?”
  3. Capitalize people’s name.
    • Example:
      • “Christopher Nolan is an excellent director, screenwriter, and producer.”
  4. Capitalize the proper nouns (names of the cities, countries, geological location).
    • Example:
      • “She’s from Maluku, Indonesia.”
      • “We’ve been in Northern California for a holiday.”
  5. Capitalize the proper nouns (historical event, political parties, religion and religious term, races, nationality, languages).
    • Example:
      • “Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941.”
      • “There are many Asians living in America.”
      • “Thank, God!”
  6. Capitalize days of the week, month, holiday. However, do not capitalize the names of seasons (spring, summer, fall, autumn, winter).
    • Example:
      • “Today is Saturday, December 13, 2018.”
      • “Out of all season, I love spring the most!”
  7. Capitalize the proper nouns (names of newspaper, journal, company, and brand name).
    • Example:
      • “Most newspaper have an online edition, including the New York Times.”
      • “The current trend of South Korean idols is to wear Balenciaga shoes.”
  8. Capitalize a formal title when it is used as a form of address.
    • Example:
      • “Thank you for your help, Doctor!”
      • “Let’s visit Grandfather today.”

That wraps up our session, Fellas! See you on another interesting session.
