From Teflpedia

Capitalisation is the process of rendering the first letter of a word as uppercase.[1]

Capitalisation conventions in English are complicated and have evolved over time.[2]

  • For names
  • At the beginning of sentences.

EFL learners may over-capitalise or under-capitalise based on L1 transfer. For example, in French days of the week are not capitalised.
