    How to understand the dictionary etc.

    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions to ask:

    No.1
    When I was consulting the phrase 'bring in' in my dictionary ( Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English) the definition is as follows:

    to allow or invite someone to beocme involved in a discussion, INVESTIGATION etc.

    I don't know why INVESTIGATION is capitalized. I have gone through the Explanatory Chart and can't find the reason. Could you please tell me why it is capitalized?

    No.2
    Could you please tell me when I write a note to somebody where should I sign my name? Here different books have different forms. Some are at the right corner while others are at the right corner. So I don't know which is correct.

    To make my point clear I am sending an attachment just to show you the two different forms.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang
