grammar.yourdictionary.com stated the general capitalization rules for titles. Based on the article they posted, these parts of speech should be capitalized when writing titles:

  • Nouns (man, bus, book)
  • Adjectives (angry, lovely, small)
  • Verbs (run, eat, sleep)
  • Adverbs (slowly, quickly, quietly)
  • Pronouns (he, she, it)
  • Subordinating conjunctions (as, because, that)

On the other hand,  grammar.yourdictionary.com stated that we don’t need to capitalize the following:

  • Articles: a, an, the
  • Coordinating Conjunctions: and, but, or, for, nor, etc.
  • Prepositions (fewer than five letters): on, at, to, from, by, etc.
