I'm using the \IEEEPARstart{}{} command to "drop cap" the first letter of my paper. As explained in the IEEEtran LATEX Class document automatically :

The other letters in the first word are rendered in upper case.

I don't want this as my first word is big and ugly. I want the rest of the characters to be rendered in lower case. How can I do that?

\documentclass{IEEEtran}

\begin{document}
\IEEEPARstart{S}{upercalifragilisticexpialadocious}, 
if you say it loud enough, it's sounding quite atrocious

\bigskip

\IEEEPARstart{S}{\lowercase{upercalifragilisticexpialadocious}},
if you say it loud enough, it's sounding quite atrocious
\end{document}

enter image description here

Alternately, you can even do this:

\IEEEPARstart{S}{}upercalifragilisticexpialadocious,
if you say it loud enough, it's sounding quite atrocious
  • I also added the \textbf{} to the second part so it is consistent with the first character. – Foad Apr 12 '18 at 12:32
