Certain readings are set out in CAPITAL letters. These cases or readings are to be emphasized. Others are in lower case; this indicates that our treatment of the case will be by lecture, and it accordingly indicates that you should not concentrate on that case as heavily as upon other readings. I hope that this device will help you manage the reading better!
