  • In the German language, our alphabet has, with one exception, uppercase and lowercase letters. The exception is a letter that is never used as an uppercase letter because it is not used at the beginning of a sentence or as the first letter of a word. This letter is "ß" and is pronounced like a sharp "S".
    In German e.g., the first letters of the beginning of sentences, as well as nouns, nominalizations, names, proper names are capitalized.

    • Do you use dot(.) at the end of the sentences? I think dot is a cause behind capitalizing the first letter of the first word of a sentence. We don't use dot to mark the end of a sentence. Instead, we use this ( । ) sign. 

      Well, different language works different way. Fine variegaed works of langage in various settings hold me spellbound always. Which is why, a polyglot inspires envy because he gets the strinking opportunities of exploring different languages.

      Thanks for commenting, Rose. 

      • Hi, Shaheen.

        Yes, we have to end a sentence by a dot(.)

         

         

  • Hi Shaheen. We do have. As for your language, is it cos of the alphabet? 

    • I don't know the reason behind it but out language is devode of uppercase or lowercase forms, and we are doing well without the forms. Well, though English, Russian and Bangla are under the same language family but Bangla goes further under Indo-Iranian Branch and English and Russian are under European Branch. I have no clue that whether the all languages of Indo-Iranian Brance posses the same features like Bangla.

      Thanks for the comment.
