    names of objects

    What would be the right way to write the names of different objects in labels:

    e.g. Sword ‘yatagan’, Sword yatagan, or Sword yatagan

    Thanks for help in advance

    Re: names of objects

    Without knowing what "yatagan" means, it's impossible to say. Is it a style of sword, the place it was made or something else?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: names of objects

    Is it an authentic yatagan or a yatagan-style sword? If it is authentic, just yatagan should be sufficient. If it is for an exhibiton, you might want to add a brief explanation.

    Re: names of objects

    the yatagan is a type of Tukish sword. So I understand the better option would be writing it in italic than putting in inverted commas? Thanks
