Are chapter names capitalized?
People also ask, is the word section capitalized?
"Section" is not referring to the previous section by name, therefore no capital. So the rule (I use) is, if it is a proper name, then use a capital. This means, if it is of the form "Section $n$", where $n$ is a number, then it needs a capital.
Similarly, which words should be capitalized? In general, you should capitalize the first word, all nouns, all verbs (even short ones, like is), all adjectives, and all proper nouns. That means you should lowercase articles, conjunctions, and prepositions—however, some style guides say to capitalize conjunctions and prepositions that are longer than five letters.
Subsequently, one may also ask, are document names capitalized?
1 Answer. You capitalize something when it is a proper noun, i.e. when it identifies a specific thing. So if you are writing a document that lays out a specific business case (say the one for your company) and it's title is "Business Case" then you capitalize it.
Why are titles capitalized?
Short verbs, nouns, and adjectives are capitalized; for example, in There Will Be Blood, Be is capitalized because it is a verb. As for why titles should be capitalized, the answer is as old as the English language itself, and the answer is surely so that the title can be distinguished from the rest of the text itself.
