Ah the proper use of capitalization when using titles of an individual.



I know lord is capitalized when used with a name like Lord Mathias but is it capitalized when you are speaking to his lordship during a conversation? "I don't know m' lord, I will have to get back with you on that." Or another case as in: "I spoke with the baron today your lordship and he said there will be no treaty signed between our lands."

I believe the rules for this are ass. So I would say don't bother.


But whatever you decide, be consistent.


However, you must (must, must) set apart your terms of address with the comma. Always. Every single time. "I don't know, m'lord. ..." and "I spoke with the baron today, your lordship, ..." Even "Hi, mom."
