Capital Letters and Capitalizing

Capital Letters are the larger letters used at the beginning of sentences and names. They are the letters made on a typewriter when the "Shift" key is pressed.

To capitalize a word means "to make the first letter of the word a capital letter." See the Capitalization Rules topic in the Grammar Contents for more on when to capitalize.

Capital letters are sometimes called Upper Case letters.

For a list of the capital letters, see the letters in the Glossary Index Box.
