WHAT DOES SENHOR MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Senhor

Senhor (Portuguese pronunciation: , abb. Sr.; plural: senhores, abb. Srs. 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 (pronounced: , abb. Sra. or Sra.; plural: senhoras, abb. Sras. or Sras.). The term is related to Spanish señor, Catalan senyor, Occitan sénher, French seigneur, and Italian signore. 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 (as when referring to the kings or members of the high nobility), which translates literally in English as "Lord Lord". 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").
