L.3 Case Conversion

M-- M-l
Convert last word to lower case. Note Meta-- is Meta-minus.
M-- M-u
Convert last word to all upper case.
M-- M-c
Convert last word to lower case with capital initial.

A very common error is to type words in the wrong case. Because of this, the word case-conversion commands M-l, M-u and M-c have a special feature when used with a negative argument: they do not move the cursor. As soon as you see you have mistyped the last word, you can simply case-convert it and go on typing. See section T.6 Case Conversion Commands.
