    Not in Arabic. Actually, the capital letters go at the end of all words, so that's a little bit of grammer that we don't have to learn!

    There are no capital letters in Arabic, are there? Each letter has only one form, with variations depending on its position in the word. I'm confused as to what you might be referring to by "capital letters" in Arabic.

    It's also the same in Hebrew with some letters, following ones:
    ,כ >>> ך
    ,מ >>> ם
    ,נ >>> ן
    ,פ >>> ף
    צ >>> ץ​

    Latin capitalized them, too.

    Those are not capital letters. They are different forms of these five letters that are used when these letters appear at the end of a word.

    A capital letter has nothing to do with aesthetics, but with usage. Capital letters, in the languages that have them, are used with certain words because of the word's grammatical function.

    These Hebrew forms, as well as the Arabic forms, do not have to do with usage, but simply with aesthetics. They have to do with where the letter appears within the word, and not with the word's grammatical function.

    I hope this helps.
