AAE Q57: 'I'

Hi

Why does the pronoun "I" always have to be written with a capital letter?.

Thanks a lot.


Hi,

"I" was originally written with a capital letter to make sure that it was clearly recognizable as a separate word rather than part of the word before or after it. This avoided misreading handwritten manuscripts.
