Exercise 4 - Language in use
This exercise uses academic subjects and titles of books to illustrate the meaning of area.

Remember that when you write the title of a book, not all the words in the title start with a CAPITAL letter. Here are some rules about which words in a book title must start with a CAPITAL (big) letter.

The first word in the title will always start with a CAPITAL.

Other words in a title that have less than 4 letters (like "and" or "of") will start with a small letter instead of a CAPITAL.

As usual, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, the word "I" is always written with a CAPITAL letter.
Here is a list of different subject areas. Match each area to the title of a book in the table below.

Drag and drop your answers into the table.
