Is Father Capitalized

The word “father” can be capitalized depending on how it is used in a sentence or title. When used generically in a sentence such as: “my father said to visit him,” then the word father is lowercase because it is a generic noun.

Correct: My father is the best.

However, if you are addressing your father directly, such as when asking a question, then you should capitalize the word father.

Correct: Can I go to the movies, Father?
