    Far and Middle Eastern countries

    "We are very strongly positioned in Far and Middle Eastern countries."

    According to Microsoft Word, "Far" should not be capitalized. Should it?

    Thanks!

    Re: Far and Middle Eastern countries

    Yes.

    'The Far East' and 'the Middle East' are normally capitalised.

    Re: Far and Middle Eastern countries

    "Far and Middle Eastern countries" and "Far and Middle East countries." Are both correct?

    Thanks.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER/ONLY MY OPINION


    Jasmin,


    I remembered your thread while reading my local newspaper

    this morning. These three sentences come from the same

    article:

    "The reach of the People's Republic [of China] is extending ...

    from the Far East to Africa to Latin-America, and its interest

    in the Middle East is ...."

    "These ... Middle Eastern states all have ...."

    "Some Mideast states also ...."

    (The two scholars who wrote this article belong to the Washington

    Institute for Near East Policy.)


    Thank you
