Capital letters – a handy guide
I’m often asked whether certain words should start with a capital letter. Yes, we all know that sentences always start with capitals but what about other words mid-sentence where the answer doesn’t seem as cut and dried?
If you’re confused, it’s for a good reason. While some capitalisations are logical, many are not. Some capital letters are consistent throughout the language while others are arbitrary, differing from country to country and even from one newspaper to another!
