A parenthetical statement that is a complete sentence should begin with a capital.
I used to debate this everytime I’d use i.e. or e.g. in my writing. Not anymore!
E.g., this is a proper example.
I.e., something like this is correct.
Wrong way: 1
e.g., This is a bad example.
Apparently it is also good practice to include the comma.
- Sadly this is how I’ve usually written it, except I almost always left off the comma. ↩
