It seems fairly simple and easy how capitalization works in English language. But when you dig deeper inside you come to know that everything is not that easy. Since childhood we know that the first letter of the first word is capitalized in each sentence. What we don’t know is that capitalization is not limited to the first letter of the first word of a sentence. There are in fact seven rules of capitalization which I will discuss in this article.
The room is empty.
Mr. Smith is a good teacher.
He visited Washington last year.
No capitalization after a colon.
I’ll not be here in January.
Do not capitalize the seasons.
My favorite season is summer.
Capitalize events and time periods.
