Quotes

    Mariahas quoted6 years ago
    Capital letters are sometimes referred to as ‘upper case’. This is because manual typesetters kept these letters in the upper drawers of a desk – the upper type case. More frequently used letters were stored on a lower shelf, thus ‘lower case’ letters.

    Knowing the rules – and breaking them because you feel like it, not because you don’t know any better – will make you a more confident, creative and entertaining writer and speaker.
