Along the same lines, compare the following three sentences: I Got It off the Internet , Please Put It Off for Today , and I Hit the Off Switch . In the first example, the preposition off is lowercase. But the word must be capped in the second example because put off , meaning "to postpone," is a two-word phrasal verb (a verb of two or more words). One-word verbs, helping verbs , and phrasal verbs are always capitalized. Off is also capped in the third sentence because the word functions as an adjective in that title, and adjectives are always capitalized.
Most words with prefixes such as Anglo-, Franco-, etc., are capitalized. For example, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-French and Anglo-Norman are all capitalized. However, there is some variation concerning a small number of words of French origin. In French, these words are not capitalized, and this sometimes carries over to English. There are variations by country, and since editors often refer to only one dictionary, they may unwittingly contravene WP:Manual of Style § Varieties of English by changing usage to that of their own country. In general terms, Americans are most favourable to capitalization and Canadians least favourable, with other countries falling somewhere in between. The main exceptions to the capitalization rule are the following.
