Here, we explore grammar basics of AP style that writers use on a daily basis.
Only capitalize formal titles used before an individual’s name. Titles that serve as occupations should be lowercase. Also lowercase titles when they are not used with an individual’s name.
Pope Francis, the current pope, left the Vatican for a world tour.
The baseball team went to visit President Joe Biden at the White House.
The dentist, Joe Smith, spoke to the council of doctors.
These guidelines apply to titles of books, movies, plays, poems, albums, songs, operas, radio and television programs, lectures, speeches, and works of art:
I’ve never seen “Star Wars,” but I’m excited to watch it.
My friends host a Guitar Hero competition every year.
