Capital letters and punctuation


Capital letters are very important in English punctuation.

They are used:

1. at the start of a sentence

The day is sunny.

Paul, do you need some help?

2. with proper nouns (particular persons, places, and things):

His name is Peter.

She lives in France.

3. with adjectives that come from proper nouns

She loved Italian food.

Although William Shakespeare is best known for his plays, many exams also cover Shakespearean poetry.

4. for the first and all of the main words in titles

The First Second War

East of Eden

Romeo and Juliet

5. For the pronoun ‘I’

My name is Lily. I am British. I come from Liverpool.
