Senhor Senhor (, abb. "Sr."; plural: "senhores", abb. "Sr." or "Srs."), from the Latin "Senior" (comparative of "Senex", "old man"), is the Portuguese word for lord, sir or mister. Its feminine form is senhora (, abb. "Sr." or "Sra."; plural: "senhoras", abb. "Sr." or "Sras."). The term is related to Spanish "señor", Catalan "senyor", Occitan "sénher", French "seigneur", and Italian "signore".
Senhor Traditionally, but not presently, the feminine form "senhora" was only used for a married woman (a single woman was addressed formally as "menina", "young girl", or by the diminutive "senhorita", "little lady").
Senhor Originally it was only used to designate a feudal lord or sire, as well as being one of the names of God. With time its usage spread and, as means of differentiation, noble people began to use "Senhor Dom X" (as when referring to the kings or members of the high nobility), which translates literally in English as "The Lord, Lord X".
Senhor In 1597, King Philip I issued a decree standardizing the noble styles in use in the Kingdom of Portugal. "Sua Senhoria" (translated as "His Lordship" or "Her Ladyship") was the prescribed manner of address to archbishops (with the exception of the Archbishop of Braga who, due to his rank as Primate of Hispania, was entitled to the style of "Sua Senhoria Reverendíssima", or "His Most Reverend Lordship"), bishops, dukes (with the exception of the Duke of Braganza, who was to be addressed as "Sua Excelência", Your Excellency, same as the King's grandchildren) and their children, marquises, counts, the Prior of Crato, viceroys and governors (when not related to the King), and other high auhorities of the Kingdom (such as judges or ambassadors).
Senhor Presently it is used in the same context as mister ("senhor Silva", or "Sr. Silva", meaning "Mr. Silva"), or as a way of saying a formal "you" ("O senhor tem uma casa" meaning "You (male) have a house"). In formal contexts "o senhor, a senhora, os senhores" and "as senhoras" (masculine singular, feminine singular, masculine plural, and feminine plural "you", respectively) are preferred. However, there is considerable regional variation in the use of these terms, and more specific forms of address are sometimes employed. "O senhor" and "a senhora" are the most ceremonious forms of address. English speakers may find the latter construction akin to the parliamentary convention of referring to fellow legislators in the third person (as "my colleague", "the gentleman", "the member", etc.), although the level of formality conveyed by o senhor is not as great. In fact, variants of "o senhor" and "a senhora" with more nuanced meanings such as "o professor" ("professor"), "o colega" ("colleague") and "o pai" ("father") are also employed as personal pronouns. Often "senhor" is followed by another title or job description, such as doctor ("senhor doutor"), engineer ("senhor engenheiro"), teacher or professor ("senhor professor"), or police officer ("senhor polícia"), thus conveying a high level of formality.
