Hi there,

Is a 'the' needed in front of 'Places...'? I believe headings are supposed to be very short and snappy. Also, do I keep the underlined part or omit it?

Places I Visited in My Summer Vacation, 2008

Please also tell me which initial letters are to be capitalized.

Thanks.

Hi,

I believe headings are supposed to be very short and snappy. Yes, usually.

Also, do I keep the underlined part or omit it?I'd keep it, to avoid making your heading very vague.

Places I Visited In My Summer Vacation, 2008

Please also tell me which initial letters are to be capitalized. I'd capitalize 'in'. Or you might say 'During'.

Thank you very much, Clive.

Is '2008' necessary?

Hi,
Well, it makes it clear that you are talking about this year. You could explain that in the text, of course, which seems better to me.

Capitalization with "Title Case" is a matter of style. AP Style would not capitalize "in" but others might. Always capitalize nouns and verbs, and usually do not capitalize articles and prepositions.

Oh Okay Sir, but when the assignment is going to be handed right after the vacation, won't it be obvious that he visited the places in 2008?

Do I use "in" or "during"? I mean which seems better to you?

Thanks for such a succinct explanation, GG. You always put everything very clearly and nicely, and so does Clive.
