#177092 - 05/22/08 10:18 AM Capitalize?
I receive the word a day, and this week and last they have all been eponyms. When the word is demonstrated in a sentence I notice that sometimes it is capitalized and sometimes it is not. If the words originate from proper names it makes sense that you would capitalize it, but it does not seem to be consistent. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is there a standard?
