    capitalization

    Hey,

    Yeah, through my years of education my teachers have failed to successfully teach me the proper way to capitalize certain subjects in a sentence. Other than at the beginning of a sentence and names I don't really know how to capitalize. If you could help me out I would be grateful.
    Thanks

    I think you will need to be a bit more specific. We capitalize proper nouns no matter where they occur in a sentence. These would include names of people, places, businesses, etc. Do you have a specific question?

    This may help:
