capitalizations - of mum, dad, uncle Pete,
I am still confused over capitalisation use.
Example, I said hi to my grandfather, my dad and my Uncle Pete
I said hi to my Grandfather, my Dad and my Uncle Pete,
I said hi to my grandfather, my dad and my uncle Pete
Which is the correct form and why?
If you use a possessive pronoun, don't capitalize unless it's the actual name. If there is no possessive pronoun and the term is what the person's name is to you, then use capitalization.
I said '"hi" to my uncle Pete.
I said '"hi" to Uncle Pete.
I said '"hi" to my dad.
I said '"hi" to Dad.
'Pete' will always be capitalized because it's a proper noun.
