As a writer, I love words! A slight change in spelling can mean a world of difference. A recent walk to the Idaho State Capitol building in Boise triggered my thought-process for this post.
- The building in which a legislative assembly meets. I love this spelling tip: the o in capitol is round like the dome of a capitol building.
Capital — with an A in the last syllable
- A city that serves as the seat of government
- Money, property, asset, or advantage
- A capital letter (i.e., used at the beginning of a sentence or someone’s name)
My personal favorite is when Capital is used as an adjective — That’s a capital idea! — Meaning excellent, jolly good, or spot on!
What was the last capital idea you had?
