What's with the capital letters?Originally Posted by Inspect My Method
Here is where you should use capitalisation:
English sentences always begin with a capital letter.
The personal pronoun "I" is always written with a capital letter, wherever in a sentence it comes:
- We saw the accident from a distance.

Apart from these cases, capital letters are used at the beginning of the following types of words:
- I like horror films.
- Jenny and I went to the beach together.
