Internet or internet?

Well, yes and no. It’s actually been around for millennia. For example, medieval manuscript scribes developed all sorts of shorthand to make their cumbersome task more bearable, by abbreviating many common words such as with (c.), and (&), for example (e.g.), that is (i.e.), goodness gracious (wtf) and so on.




You’ll only find that I will ignore you because I haven’t understood anything you said…

Well, I know now that rn is right now :stuck_out_tongue:

@molona sometimes I don’t understand what I’ve said either.


For things like assignments, applications etc. I use Internet. For casual use like on forums I don’t bother capitalizing.

Also if we’re complaining about the internet and spelling, I have seen myself use “color”, mainly because I use it too much for CSS. :scream:

The use of “sick” as in “that is soooo sick bro” is another annoyance of mine…

Same for me, but I wasn’t using it in that context.

As someone living in Germany for most of my life now, no. Just…uh…no! :smiley:

This article I think hits the nail on the head.

So, the one “Internet” we all use is a thing and a proper noun. Just like “World Wide Web”, which denotes the interlinking of information on the Internet, is also capitalized, because it is also a proper noun.

Well, I also think that the i in the word “internet” should be capitalized because Internet is a proper noun.

I Agree with your words “I” in the Internet should be capital because the word Internet is a proper noun


That’s all I have to say on the matter!
