Correct grammar is to capitalise only proper nouns, and the first letter of a sentence.

If I wanted to be pedantic, I'd say that capitalisation, along with spelling, word spacing, punctuation, etc. are orthography and not grammar.

I accept this pedanticism.

Pedantry.

Pedantry.

Pedantry. Indeed.

‘Pedanticism’ is a word:

Unless you mean that it’s pedantry to object to pedanicism as a synonym for pedantry?
