Memorial University follows a modified lower case style. The basic rule is to capitalize all proper names, trade names, government departments and agencies of government, names of centres, departments, faculties, universities, associations, companies, clubs, religions, languages, nations, races, places and addresses. Otherwise lower case is favoured where a reasonable option exists. Upper case slows down the readability and comprehensibility of a sentence.
This section has been subdivided into sections, including:
- Capitalizing academic subjects
- Capitalizing departments & administrative units
- Capitalizing government
- Capitalizing other/miscellaneous
- Capitalizing job titles
- Capitalizing titles of works of art
CP Caps and Spelling should be used for other items.
