@George,
Thank you! What is the difference between 'Mors' and 'Mortem'?

P.S. love Game of Thrones. I'm planning to read the book after watching the show. It's so good. I'm Harry Potter fan, Tolkien's fan, Witcher's fan and now Game of Thrones Cool

@Dante00001,
Mors is the nominative case.
Mortem is the accusative case.

@George,
Ah, I guessed right, a bit of long term memory in action.

@Dante00001,
latin does not have a definite article so unless you can take 'Deus' as a proper name -- and Death for that matter-- it makes no sense. Early Latin would have been all caps so your thinking that the caps say something is wrong.

@AugustineBrother,
From the Middle Ages on, it has been common practice to use upper and
lower case letters. The original poster's thinking is not wrong at all unless
he wishes to emulate the Classical form of writing.
