PostSubject: Capitalisation and Punctuation Campaign. Some useful links.   Thu Feb 26, 2009 4:38 pm

Salam!
We sometimes take it for granted that a given piece of information is true as, logically, it seems so.
But, at a moment of self-conscience, one feels the necessity to review things, ensure about things, questioning everything, doubting about everything, however simple they may seem.
While ‘launching the Capital Letters and Punctuation Marks Campaign’, I felt really that I should make sure that everything I say should be based on well-checked rules. I thus found myself ignoring whether the word ‘earth’, as a planet, is considered to be as a proper noun or a common noun. This has urged me to make a little and immediate research, since the word would appear in the second exam paper. I felt really surprised when I learnt the following:
The earth, moon, and sun are not capitalized unless in a list of celestial objects or part of another name.
Correct:
I was born on the earth.
Correct: The first three planets from the Sun are Mercury, Venus, and Earth. (In a list)
You’ll find very useful information through this link.
Capitalising Proper Nouns

Names Not Capitalised

Rules for Capitalisation Contents
-Capitalising sentences
-Capitalising quotations
-Special cases for capitalising
-Capitalising in letters. And others…
Here is the link:

As for subjects-disciplines , ‘Maths’, ‘Physics’, still I’m not sure, whether they are considered as proper nouns in all situations… In MS4 book, I found the word ‘Physics’ capitalised (File 3); and since it’s not trustworthy, I should make a small research…
I’ve read somewhere that subject-disciplines such as Chinese, English, and Physics are proper nouns.
But there isn’t a unified view…Still I should make sure.
While searching, I bumped into very interesting ways of teaching, reinforcing Capitals and other points:
A useful video…

Salam Alaikoum.

This is really the right way we can learn and improve: raise a problematic issue then go to the end to learn details then bring the right remedies.
Your work is formidable. I hope it will incite other colleagues to move and take part.
Keep on working for the good of our children. The more you do, the more you'll be satisfied. "No sweet without sweat".
Thanks for everything.
Jasakoum Allahou Khairan.
Salam
Mohamed07.
