Key Concepts- Unit 5

Capitalization & Punctuation Key Concepts

direct quotation the exact words a speaker says--Use quotation marks only when you write a direct quotation. Barney said, "Clean up everywhere!"
end marks show where sentences end--There are 3 kinds of end marks. (.) Declarative and Imperative (?) Interrogative (!) Exclamatory
interrogative sentence ends with a question mark (?) Did you clean your room?
exclamatory sentence ends with an exclamation mark (!) What a good job you did!
declarative sentence ends with a period (.) I'm gong to brag on you about this.
imperative sentence ends with a period (.) Get your bags, before we go.
titles and initials used with names and are capitalized--Only capitalize family titles when they are used as names. Capitalize: We are going with Mom to the store. Do not capitalize: My mom and I are going to the store.
when "yes", "no", or "well" is the first word in a sentence use a comma after these words to show the pause in your writing Yes, we will go. No, we will not go. Well, I changed my mind.
a capital letter shows where each sentence begins Please capitalize the first letter of each sentence.
proper nouns name a particular person, place, or thing--They always begin with a capital letter. Matilda; Pebble Creek Road; New York Mets
abbreviations words in shortened form--Most begin with a capital letter and end with a period.
two-letter abbreviations for state names are used with zip codes
commas tell readers where to pause
when a sentence includes the name of a person being addressed set off the name with commas
in a list (or series) of items, use "and" or "or" before the last item--Put a comma after each item except the last one.
in a title, capitalize the first, last, and each important word
in a title, capitalize "and", "in", "of", "to", "a", and "the" only when they are the first or last words in the title
when you write the title of a book, magazine, or newspaper, always underline
