How come the letter "I" always has to be capitalized when alone?

    Since he is alone and doesn't want to get jumped by the letters who are not he does that as a defense mechanism.

    The same reason you don't begin the spelling of someone's name with a lower case letter.

    The word "I" is a personal pronoun; its function is to take the place of the name of the person doing the writing. Thus, the capitalization.

    I is referring to yourself in the first person a majority of the time.

    When you're spelling another person or even your own name on a formal document, you capitalize the first letter of said name right? Same deal.

    Sorry I sort of had to go do something.
    At least I was contributing something to this thread instead of correcting people.[​IMG] I'm sure he knew what I meant.

    I is a personal pronoun which was stated before.

    While we're correcting people you need a period at the end of your last sentence.[​IMG]
