Commas around title
When writing a title of a dignitary with his name, should I use commas around the title?
Sanjay is half right.
When the title comes before the name -- President Obama, Professor Johnson, Doctor Young -- no comma is required.
When the title follows the name, the title is considered an appositive, and commas are required -- Barack Obama, President of the United States.
I hope this helps.
