    It is Ma'am (and if you talking to the British Queen it is Ma'am to rhyme with Jam, not Farm).

    The first duty of an apostrophe is to denote a missing letter - in this case madam becomes ma'am. Often used because madam means something quite different to people accustomed to frequenting disorderly houses.

    What the hell are you talking about?

    Edit.... Ah...I see......no, it's ma'am.....because it's a contraction of madam....the apostrophe replaces the d. As in.... it is ---> it's, so ...madam ---> ma'am. Get it now?

      I use the word, I have always written it Ma'am myself. I do normally capitalize it also. Sometimes it seems polite to show a girl respect.
