To clarify, the odd capitalization is not the unusual point we seek. There's a very particular reason for the capital letters and that is what must be found. If this ends up being too broad because people are clever and find things that fit I hadn't considered, I'll post what I was thinking of and close the question myself.

For one,

all capital letters signify the start of a chemical element's symbol. E.g. "CaN" being calcium and nitrogen (Ca, N).

Is the intended answer something more sophisticated?

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, that would explain why OP does not use "do" / "does" (no D). $\endgroup$ – KeyboardWielder May 26 '16 at 20:31

    $\begingroup$ Nothing too sophisticated, no. All the words can be made using chemical symbols on the periodic table. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast May 26 '16 at 21:06
  • $\begingroup$ @EngineerToast It must have taken forever to find possible phrases! $\endgroup$ – Block May 27 '16 at 7:31
  • $\begingroup$ @Block Actually, it wasn't too bad. I dumped this list into Excel, added a MATCH function on another sheet, and started trying possibilities. It is very frustrating forming sentences without words like a, at, the, and it. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast May 27 '16 at 12:12
