Capitals in Sentences
posted by Brittany
For my geography paper I am talking about the diseases of Foot and Mouth Disease, Smallpox, and Spanish Influenza.
Throughout my paper I am not sure whether I should be capitalizing these words or keeping them lower case.
example sentences below:
- This report will discuss the biological disasters of Foot and Mouth Disease, Smallpox, and Spanish Influenza.
- Unlike the disasters of Smallpox and Spanish Influenza, Foot and Mouth Disease was quickly and effectively contained.
If it is that I should keep these titles capitalized, for Foot and Mouth disease would you also capitalize the word disease, or keep it lower cased.
Foot and Mouth Disease (or)
Foot and Mouth disease
any help would be greatly appreciated!
The only word that should be capitalized is "Spanish."
Diseases are not usually capitalized.
