    Can you use the capital word indicator when there are prime signs between the letters or would you capitalize each letter individually?

    Example: A'B'C'D'


    Thank you for the question, Connie.

    8.4.2 in the Rules of UEB tells us that the effect of a capitalized word indicator is terminated by a nonalphabetic symbol. A prime sign is most certainly nonalphabetic, so a capitalized word indicator would not work for A′B′C′D′ (A-prime, B-prime, C-prime, D-prime).
