In English, when (if ever) is it appropriate to use the possessive with a formal title when addressing someone? Kind of like I would say, "As you wish, my greatest of loves."
Thank you, my Sensei.
Or should it simply be,
Thank you, Sensei.
Or, would the 'my' be used always and only along with the subject of learning? As in
Thank you, my Sensei of Swordsmanship.
Thank you, Sensei of Sauciness.
I believe there is a component of cultural understanding and lingual comprehension of Japan and the Japanese language that may be necessary to answer fully with regards to "Sensei" in particular, but in general, how are possessives and titles combined?
