on the spelling of "Above all or above all?"

separate and small

starBest answer of david b. 3 years ago

Above all, there is separation and everything is written in lowercase. One likes to confuse this with the spelling of first. However, this notation should not be adapted.

Why should both words be written in lower case?

Forumanswer of Wolfgang Pieper 7 months ago

Wasn't "above all" written earlier? If you write "above all", "all" is a noun and should therefore be capitalized !?

The right expression

Forumanswer of Flynn Henderson 6 months ago

I mean, I didn't mean 'noun', but rather 'noun'. But I also asked myself the question about the noun. Probably one would simply have to "above all", "above all" etc. memorize as a custom.

Preposition + inflected indefinite pronoun

Forumanswer of Jeanne 6 months ago

I was asked the same question today and I found a good answer here:
[...] The phrase "above all" is a so-called focus particle, which is used to emphasize a certain part of the sentence in which it occurs or to clarify its message. In this sense, "above all" is to be used in a similar way to certain adverbs or non-inflected adjectives, for example "at least", "straight", "even" or "at least". "At best" and "at best" are also such focus articles, which, when written together, induce many people to formulate "above all" as one term. However, this word structure consists of a preposition and an inflected indefinite pronoun, and the latter must always appear alone and therefore separately from the preposition "before". Therefore, above all else, one should always pay attention to writing "above all" separately in any case. [...] - Source :rechtschrittenipps.de
