General Writing and Grammar Help/Titles and Capitalization


QUESTION: Regarding the title:

Everyone Has a Story

Am I correct that the H in Has should be capitalized?


ANSWER: No. Only first beginning of sentence, titles with name, cities, states, etc. only.

QUESTION: This is interesting because some other grammar experts all said the H should be capitalized....hmmmm..seems like a tricky one!

ANSWER: They are wrong.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: I very much appreciate your time and help - I was able to do more research and have to say I agree with the others.   Verbs are, generally speaking, capitalized in headings based on what I read in some grammar manuals.  Thanks again so much for your time.

You are still incorrect.

Everyone= pronoun "has"=verb     story= noun (it is not at the beginning of the sentence, therefor does not capitalize.......

"has" is NOT A HEADING..sorry!
