More information[edit]

There is a load of information at http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CapitalizationRules, but I don't know if this falls under the GFDL license.

Merged?[edit]

Should this be merged into case (orthography)? - Gwalla 22:35, May 10, 2004 (UTC)

This, no. Letter case, perhaps. Dysprosia 22:48, 10 May 2004 (UTC)

Programming language cases[edit]

Two suggestions:

  • the case style that is CamelCase with first letter in lower case should be covered, (e.g. namesLikeThis) but I don't know what it is usually called.
  One of them is Pascal case and the other is Camel Case.   This article should refer to those as well.
  • embedded_underscore seems unrelated to the subject of the article, as the choice of using underscores to represent spaces is orthogonal to the choice to capitalise words. It should probably be removed.

Though the definition of 'embedded_underscore' seems very elastic concerning the case of letters, it does imply that conversion to 'embedded_underscore' may involve changing the case of one or more letters. I can see your point, but as it is stated, it does deal with case. At the very least, since 'embedded_underscore' seems to have the exact same definition as 'Snake case', one of them should be removed or they should be combined. It is possible that they should be removed based upon one of Wikipedia's other requirements (Notable, etc.) Brettpeirce (talk) 15:09, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Title: "Sentence casing"?[edit]

Unencumbered by doing any research, and despite knowing that at least "Camel case" is widely used, it seems to me that there are have been, since about 1550, two cases, upper case and lower case. I describe camel case not as a case, but as a generalization of the case concept that i call casing: uppercase is not the same as the casing i'd call "all caps", and sentence casing, title casing, and camel casing are all patterns of applying case to individual letters, that can only be explained in terms of individual letters being upper or lower case. Has there been prior discussion elsewhere on the appropriate title??

Redirect[edit]

I am redirecting this article to Letter case. The information overlaps and most of this is uncited. Ryan Vesey Review me! 03:38, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
