Do you capitalize the word “grandparents?” The word can be capitalized depending on how it is used in a sentence or title. When used generically in a sentence such as: “my grandparents said to visit them,” then the word grandpa is lowercase because it is a generic noun.
Correct: My grandparents are the best.
However, if you are addressing your grandparents directly, such as when asking a question, then you should capitalize the word grandparents.
Correct: Can I go to the movies, Grandparents?
The same holds true for any other names you might call your grandparents such as grandma or grandpa.
