Is Your Capitalized in a Title?
Rules of capitalizing a word when using title case depend on various factors. The most important factor is the word class of that word; is it a noun, preposition, verb, etc.? Most dictionaries like Collins classify your as a possessive determiner, while Merriam-Webster categorizes it as an adjective. However, in title case, the only words that you should not capitalize are:
- Short prepositions
Your is none of these and must be capitalized. This is also the case for all title case styles.
- Check out these examples:
- Can I Be Your Man?
- I Drove Your Car
- Check Your Pocket
