I have a question about using caps,
our son got marked wrong on a question, I taught him this and I feel I am right, but the teacher said he was wrong. It was sentances using caps, and this is the sentance:
"Did you let the dog out?" Mother asked.
I said mother should be in caps and she said it should not. I say that mother should not be in caps IF the sentance would have said: ... my mother.
but because it just said mother, I think mother should be in caps. am I right
