In orthography and typography, letter case (or just case) is the distinction between the letters that are in larger upper case (also upper-case or uppercase, i.e., capital letters, capitals, caps, majuscule, or large letters) and smaller lower case (also lower-case or lowercase, i.e., minuscule or small letters) in certain languages. In the Latin script, upper case letters are A, B, C, etc., whereas lower case includes a, b, c, etc. Here is a comparison of the upper and lower case versions of each letter used in the English alphabet (the exact representation will vary according to the font used).
