I think that I answered this directly in the last post. Is there something in that you didn't understand?Yes, but the problem is that I had always thought Holmes to be English, not Bohemian. Is there a meaning for "Bohemian soul"? Is it a kind of temperament?
"Bohemian" with the meaning I gave it (which is what it usually means) comes originally from the geographical meaning. Whether it takes a capital or not is a matter of style, they're not two different words. Anyway, the only English adjectives that take capitals are those which describe peoples and countries. Therefore, if you will only believe the word must have the capital then you have answered your own question - it could only mean that Sherlock comes from Bohemia. I don't think that's very likely to be the meaning.Sorry, timpeac, I hadn´t seen your post. I had just seen JamesM. However, I don´t agree with you, because in the book Bohemian is written with a capital B, and your explanation of bohemian doesn´t take a capital.
