    I have a book with a ship named Friendship. The name of the boat is capitalized in italics. May I use the short-form word for friend–i.e. do ship’s names come under the Proper Name rules?

    What a wonderful question!
    I believe that the special rules (6th edition lesson manual 11.5) (EBAE XVI.47.f) for the short-form word friend would be used regardless of whether it was a proper name or not.
    See also (EBAE XVI.47.b) – The NOTE to this section is on the next page (Page XVI-4)-
    EBAE XVI.47.b Note: Short-form words which are common words are not to be considered as proper names when they appear in names of books, articles, chapter headings, publishers’ names, etc.
    Ex:
    Society (of) (Friend)s
    MY (FRIEND)LY (EN)EMY.

    You can see that the short form for friend was used in both of these examples.
    I hope this helps.
