when to use list or lists
Is the following sentence correct: I sent them a copy of the membership directory which lists you as founder and scientist.
I would capitalize Founder and Scientist. Though they are both common nouns, in this case, they are used as titles. The membership directory might look something like this:
John Doe - Founder, Scientist
If you were writing an article about John Doe, then you would say that he was a scientist and a or the founder, depending on how many founders there were. If you are writing the directory, note that "scientist" is a very vague term. Most scientists are identified more specifically: chemist, biologist, physicist, etc.
