2.5 Capitalization: Titles of People

Capitalization Rules:
  1. Titles of people should be capitalized.
    Examples:
    Aunt Sarah and Mr Lee begin their names and titles with a capital letter.

  2. Titles of relatives (e.g., Mother, Father, etc.) are capitalized only if they are used in place of the relative's name (e.g., Linda, Allen, etc).
    Examples:
    Reading is Grandma's favorite hobby.
    My mother went to work.

    In the above sentence, mother is not capitalized because if you replace 'mother' with her name, the above sentence does not make sense.

  3. Titles of respect used with names of people should be capitalized.
    Examples:
    Dr. Martin Luther King
    President Bush
