Style (manner of address)

From MicroWiki, the micronational encyclopædia
Jump to: navigation, search

A style is a form of legal title commonly associated with leading political and religious figures who hold an established legal office in a specific institution. Although styles are used in nearly all forms of government, they are more commonly associated with monarchies and aristocracies. In such systems a style of office is typically more extravagant than those of a republican system, with styles such as "Royal Majesty" or "Excellency" being employed. Styles are typically broken down into the reference style (third person, e.g. "His/Her Highness"), spoken style (second person, e.g. "Your Highness") and alternative style (second person for use as an alternative to the spoken style, e.g. "Sir/Madam"). In some cases the first two styles may be identical, as is the case with the popular communust style of "Comrade", whilst others may have no alternative.
