[SOUND] So in the previous video we covered punctuation. It’s time now to turn our focus on capitalization. For this we will look at three main areas, proper nouns, people and their titles, and media titles. Capitalization is important for two reasons. First, you don’t want to offend your readers by not capitalizing their name, company or city for instance. Also, when you don’t pay attention to the rules of capitalization, your reader has a negative idea about you when they see your errors in your email. The first rule is to use capital letters at the very beginning of anything you write, and right after a period to begin the next sentence. If a brand name like iPhone or eBay is at the start of a sentence, capitalize it anyway. Next, always use capitals with proper nouns. These are things of which there’s only one example, like the Great Pyramids or Tokyo, Japan. Adjectives made by using proper nouns also take capital letters. Things like French wine, Italian sport cars, or Colombian coffee are examples of this sort of adjective. People can be proper nouns. The Pope, or Pope Francis. The Queen, or Queen Elizabeth. Another example would be President Obama, or The President. Only when referring directly to him. This is different when you write the president will travel to California. Do not confuse official titles with occupations, for instance, coach Ellis or Manchester United team owner Malcom Glazer. Here coach or team owner is the job, not the person’s title. Other things that are capitalized include newspapers, like the New York Times, or the London Herald Tribune. Or magazines like Vanity Fair and Time. Also, book and movie titles follow these same rules. In all of these forms of media, the prepositions are not capitalized. For example, Lord of the Rings. One exception of this rule is that you need to capitalize the preposition if it’s at the beginning of the title. So let’s review. We looked at three aspects of capitalization. We looked at proper nouns, people and their titles, and media titles. You should now be more comfortable with capitalization and punctuation. [SOUND]
