Capital letters in this situation?

(5 Posts)

If you are referring to someone as something do you use a capital letter?

For example if you were calling someone darling?

'will you step over there please, darling?'

Would the darling be '*D*arling'?

I just need to check please!

Bump!

I would say no, as it's not technically a proper noun, more of an adjective.

If I saw 'darling' used as you describe capitalised in a book it would look odd to me.

Thankyou!

No. Definitely not.
