A formal title for a woman of high social status. Also used as an affectionate term by a man/woman for his/her girlfriend or wife.

Still, the English language prefers to use the borrowed French "Madame" rather than the native English "My Lady" in address.

The best word for a male to take a normal, innocent sounding sentence, and add an awkward, perverted, creepy twist, in reference to speaking with a female. It is always used at the end of a sentence, and usually follows a comma. For extra effect, can be complimented with lowering of the voice, and raising of the eyebrows. Is used by guys that desperately can't get any action globally. It's use is significantly higher when the man has been consuming copious amounts of alcohol.

In extreme cases, subjects have been known to use a weirder and creepier version of the word ladies, which appears to be some sort of obscure reference to the middle ages, by saying m'ladies.

An increasingly rare sub-species of human being. Sadly, most were killed off over the past few decades due to the introduction of a number of competitive species (bitches, hoes, etc.). Numbers have also been greatly reduced by race contamination, sexually transmitted diseases, and suicide due to mistreatment.
Proper ladies are expected to die out by 2065. What a sad ending to a noble story.

I want a proper lady in my life, but I only have bitches and lezzies.
