Capitalization

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Capitalization (North American spelling), or capitalisation (British spelling), is a process to make one letter or more uppercase. The first letter of a sentence is capitalised in many languages, as are the first letters of proper nouns such as names of people and places. In German, however, all nouns are capitalized but digits are not.

In the Latin alphabet, which is used in English, these are the uppercase or capital letters:

A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z

These are the lowercase or small letters and digits:

a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0

The homonym capitalize is a different word, and means "to fully fund as an investment".
