Capitalising on the Capital Letter … .

Remember the day when a capital letter was only to be used on the name of a person, a place and title of a book or film? I do.

Today; capital letters appear so often in writings, that it makes even me start to query whether they should be there. That’s because we see them being incorrectly used so often that, after time, they become ‘correct’, as everyone who reads regularly sees the capital letters and accepts that, well, ‘this is the way it is’.

Remember the old ‘eleven plus’ exams, and also the GCEs and CSEs, when you had to correctly punctuate a piece of work? Whereas as I had confidence back then, I would now need to query what I have always known.

Sad, don’t you think?

Or doesn’t it matter anymore?
