I just wondered if I grasped this correctly.
-Talking to/about someone whose name is known, I use ‘Mr’, ‘Mrs’, or ‘Miss’; e.g. ‘Hello, Mr Smith.’
-Talking to someone whose name is unknown, I use ‘Sir’ or ‘Madam’; e.g. ‘Can I help you, sir?’
-Talking about someone whose name is unknown, I use ‘Gentleman’ or ‘Lady’; e.g. ‘Would you excuse me for a moment, I must talk to this gentleman here.’
Is this correct?
Thanks for your help!
