[FROM THE TEXT]
Rules for capitalization: Capitalize the first word in every sentence. The first word of a directly quoted sentence should begin with a capital letter, whether or not the quotation comes at the beginning of your sentence. Capitalize the first word in both the salutation and the closing of a letter. Capitalize the pronoun “I.” Capitalize proper nouns. A “proper noun” names a particular person, place, thing, or idea. Proper nouns are capitalized. A common noun names a kind or type of person, place, thing, or idea. A “common noun” generally is not capitalized unless it begins a sentence or is part of a title. Do not capitalize the names of school subjects, except course names followed by a numeral and the names of language classes. Capitalize proper adjectives. A “proper adjective” is formed from a proper noun. Most abbreviations are capitalized. Capitalize titles.
