1. Capitalization Using proper capitalization…

2. Question #1 • Rewrite all words with incorrect capitalization with proper capitalization. (Hint: there are 4 errors) • Here in the east, each season offers us something new. In Spring, bright flowers are sprinkled everywhere. We make daisy chains with aunt Marie, who visits every year from the south.

3. Question #1 • Here in theEast, each season offers us something new. In spring, bright flowers are sprinkled everywhere. We make daisy chains with AuntMarie, who visits every year from theSouth. Capitalize north, south, east, west, and derivative words when they designate definite regions or are an integral part of a proper name. Do not capitalize these words when they merely indicate direction or general location. Lowercase “fall,” “autumn,” “winter,” “spring,” and “summer” unless the word is part of a proper name.

4. Throughout history, people have treated the bodies of their dead with great respect. The ancient greek dramatist, sophocles, wrote a tragedy about antigone, who died rather than obey a rule which forbade her to bury the body of her brother. Yet human beings are not the only creatures who feel the need to move the bodies of their dead to safe and quiet places. In sociology 101 last monday, Dr. Cummings lectured about burial customs among other species. When I signed up for Sociology in the fall, I hardly expected to be studying animals. However, i find that it puts human rituals in perspective to know that many beasts, from the tiny birds swarming above the highway in october to massive africanElephants grazing on a distant plain, will stop whatever they are doing to cooperate in hiding the remains of any members of their species who have died in open places. 10 mistakes
