CAPITALIZATION OF TITLES IN TURABIAN A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations Chicago Style for Students and Researchers, 7 th Edition Capitalization of Titles in Turabian Headline-style capitalization is intended to distinguish titles clearly from

surrounding text. In this style, capitalize the first letter of the first and last words of the title and subtitle and all other words, except as follows: Do not capitalize articles (a, an, the), the coordinating conjunctions (and, but, or, nor, for, so, yet), or the words to and as unless such a word is the first or last word in the title or subtitle. Do not capitalize prepositions (of, in, at, above, under, and so forth) unless they are emphasized (through in A River Runs Through It) or used as adverbs (up in Look Up), adjectives (on in The On Button), or conjunctions (before in Look Before You Leap).

Capitalization of Titles in Turabian Headline-style capitalization is intended to distinguish titles clearly from surrounding text. In this style, capitalize the first letter of the first and last words of the title and subtitle and all other words, except as follows: Do not capitalize the second part (or subsequent parts) of a hyphenated compound unless it is a proper noun or adjective. Do not capitalize parts of proper nouns that are normally in lowercase (van in Ludwig van Beethoven).

To Have and to Hold: A Twenty-first-century View of Marriage The Economic Effects of the Civil War in the Mid-Atlantic States Four Readings of the Gospel according to Matthew Still Life with Oranges Capitalization of Titles in Turabian Although many short words are lowercase in this style, length does not determine capitalization. You must capitalize short verbs (is, are), adjectives (new), personal pronouns (it, we), and relative pronouns (that), because they are not among the

exceptions listed above. Use lowercase for long prepositions (according) since they are among the exceptions. Two kinds of titles should not be presented in headline style even if you use it for all other titles: For titles in languages other than English, use the sentence-style capitalization. For titles of works published in the eighteenth century or earlier, retain the original capitalization (and spelling), except that words spelled out in all capital letters should be given with an initial capital only.

Capitalization of Titles in Turabian Sentence-style capitalization is a simpler, though less distinct, way of presenting titles than headline style. In this style, capitalize only the first letter of the first word of the title and subtitle and any proper nouns and proper adjectives thereafter. Seeing and selling late-nineteenth-century Japan Natural crisis: Symbol and imagination in the mid-American farm crisis

Capitalization of Titles in Turabian Sentence style is also used for titles of works in foreign languages. Foreign languages have capitalization principles different from English, so if you are uncertain about these principles in a particular language, consult a reliable authority.
