book. I went through many different resources and a total of six different
editors to ensure that all the proper tweaking was in place. I noted things
in this grammar book that I haven't found in any other book. The entry on
how to capitalize titles is excellent and something I had long wondered about.
Titles and capitalization. With respect to book, magazines, songs, etc.,
confusion often exists as to when titles are italicized and when they are
placed in quotation marks. Note that underlining is no longer used to
identify titles (gone are the days of the typewriter). The general rule is
that longer works or full works are placed in italics. Partial works or
short works are placed in quotation marks, and are not italicized. This
means that the titles of books, magazines, newspapers, movies, TV programs,
radio programs, plays, and names of albums are italicized. However, the
titles of articles, essays, short stories, poems, chapters in a book,
episodes in a TV series, and songs are placed in quotation marks.
Three rules are always observed with regard to the capitalization of titles:
always capitalize the first and last words of a title and never use a period
after the last word. Beyond this, the rules for capitalization of titles are
somewhat arbitrary. The broad rule is to capitalize all important words and
not to capitalize small, unimportant words. Important words include all
nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Exceptions may include the
verbs "is," "am," and "are" and the word "as," regardless of what part of
speech it represents. "Unimportant" words'--'prepositions, conjunctions, and
interjections'--'may or may not be capitalized. Two-letter prepositions
(e.g., at, by, in, of, on, to, up) are seldom capitalized and the articles
(i.e., a, an, the) are virtually never capitalized (unless, of course,
they're the first word of a title). The coordinating conjunctions "and,"
"but," "or," "nor," and "for" are seldom capitalized; the conjunctions "yet"
and "so" are almost always capitalized.
Some confusion may arise with regard to the words "capitalization" and "full
caps." Capitalization denotes placing only the first letter of a word in
caps (e.g., Great). Full caps refers to placing every letter of a word in
caps. (e.g., GREAT).
organization and the clear explanations make it suitable for anyone wanting
to improve his or her knowledge of grammar. The examples are reader-friendly
and the approach is reader-engaging. I highly recommend this work.
