Composition titles

Apply the guidelines listed here to book titles, computer game titles, movie titles, opera titles, play titles, poem titles, album and song titles, radio and television program titles, and the titles of lectures, speeches and works of art.

The guidelines, followed by a block of examples:

— Capitalize the principal words, including prepositions and conjunctions of four or more letters. — Capitalize an article - the, a, an - or words of fewer than four letters if it is the first or last word in a title.
— put quotation marks around the names of all such works except the Bible and books that are primarily of catalogs of reference material. In addition to catalogs, this category includes almanacs, directories, dictionaries, encyclopedias, gazetteers, handbooks, and similar publications. Do not use quotation marks around such software titles as Word or Windows.
— Translate a foreign title into English unless a work is generally know by its foreign name. An exception to this is reviews of musical performances. In those instances, generally refer to the work in the language it was sung it, so as to differentiate for the reader. However, musical compositions in Slavic languages are always referred to in their english translations. (our exceptions - book titles are italic, chapters and articles have quotes, lectures and speeches - no quotes or italics, works of art italics.)
