How come most spanish words are lower case?
My teacher Ms.Sanz told me that most spanish words are lower case. I know she is my teacher, but is she right? I only knew spanish for two years now. Sometimes when I see a word like "Que Lastima" I wonder why the Q is capital. Can you help ?
With some proper nouns, the capitalization doesn't matter. It's simply the rule in Spanish. Like Spanish, it wouldn't be capitalized, it'd simply be español/a. It's just one more thing we have to memorize
For the most part the rules are the same. The common differences are that in Spanish one doesn't capitalize 1) days of the week 2) months of the year 3) the names of languages and 4) nouns/adjectives denoting nationality.
The title sounds very strange. Most words in English are lower case while in Spanish more words are lower case. That is because of the rules of capitalization cause more proper nouns to be capitalized in English.
