    Default English question.

    In song, movie, book, etc. titles, certain words are not capitalized unless they begin the phrase. Words such as the, with, is, and in are not capitalized. However, what about as, this, that, are, and it? Is there maybe a list somewhere of words that are not capitalized? Or is there maybe a rule I should follow? Like, maybe this, is, and that should be capitalized because they're referring to a noun?

    Is this maybe a rule in which it's kind of up to my discretion and consistency is what matters the most?

    This should help! I never realised that the last word must be capitalised, but I don't think it's often you come across a title that would have a 'minor' word at the end.

    I'm not sure what format this is, but there may be different rules for different formats, like MLA, Oxford, Chicago.

    Like, here's the MLA style, which I learned in college
