Specifically, I am wondering how “Clean Up” should be capitalized. I have three plausible options:
- “Clean Up”
- “Clean up”
It all really depends on what part of speech “up” is and whether it requires hyphenation.
I was thinking that “clean up” is a phrasal verb and… I don’t know…
Working with Subversion, eh? 🙂
As you said, clean up is a phrasal verb. Cleanup is a noun. (Hyphenation isn’t appropriate for the verb form. If it were, I wouldn’t capitalize “up.”)
I agree with Barrie England’s comment. You should capitalize “up” in the title because the linkage between the two words in a phrasal verb isn’t as strong as if they were hyphenated.
