"Oral" Blunder

You have words - now what do you do with them?

Postby Huny » Sat Jun 10, 2006 3:47 pm

Living in the south, the first thing I learned after moving here is saying "Sir and Ma'am" to show respect to people. And it is used ofter here. So ,how should I have done it while writing in spanish? Or what title would one use? And how would I fit it into the structure of the sentence? Example please. :D [/quote]

You can use señor, señora or señorita, but please don't do that around me. Note that all are lower case.
