Before you start, it’s very useful to choose your preferred (or your educator’s recommended) dictionary.  Using the UK English dictionary, I experienced some interesting grammar gremlins that caused me some confusion, but I came up with the following which may prove useful for you:

UK English Dictionary

  1. When referring to a specific degree you would capitalise Master e.g. She holds a Master of Philosophy in Management Coaching OR she is a Master of Philosophy.
  2. However, when referencing a general master’s degree – there is no capitalisation and an apostrophe is used.
  3. As far as I can see, in UK English, there is no use of the letter “z” except in the case of “cognizant”.

You may find my blog post on hectic hyphens and my own evolving dictionary useful additions to this content.

 

This is just the start, I will keep adding to this list as I find more interesting stuff.
