IrisB wrote:Hello. I am a copy editor, and I would greatly appreciate some assistance with a novel I'm working on. One character is an older woman speaking to a young girl, and she repeatedly uses a phrase that I assume means "my dear" in English. She is a native German speaker but is using English, except for this phrase. The author writes it variously as "mein liebe," "meine liebe" and "mein lieber." Obviously, it should be consistent, but it also should be correct. I'm having trouble finding a definitive answer in online dictionaries. Thanks for your help!
