  • Speaker-Singer: caps on both words (apparently this is the most common usage)
  • Spindle: is capitalized

  • hyphenated words intended to invoke the vocabulary directly are not capitalized except when they include sacred concepts: ex. 'shelter-wraps', 'joint-olding', 'first-year', (but 'place-of-Dancing' because sacred concept)
  • 'Wisdom Scrolls' - capitalized, as 'the Bible' is. Anything that implies the Wisdom Scrolls takes the caps, so 'I'll be recorded in a Scroll' not 'in a scroll.' Similarly, 'Lesser Wisdom Scrolls' and 'Greater Wisdom Scrolls' because those are codified bodies of work. Scrolls is not capitalized when referring to a piece of paper.
  • Midcaps for compound words: FireBorn, FireMother, WisdomDancer, etc.
  • words in Faulfenzair are italicized (Qiifaula, piipiizauq).
  • it's 'arm ruffs' and 'jaw ruffs' and 'foot ruffs', not armruff, and not arm-ruff (etc)
  • It is Bonding rite not Bonding ceremony, and Bondmate, not Bond-mate (or bond-mate). However, it is 'lifemate', not 'Lifemate.'
