The phrase  “My Lord and my God” in Jn 20:28 contains articular nominatives 
(Lord, God)  which are identified by Robertson and Wallace as the “Nominative 
for  Vocative”. I would think the way Jehovah’s Witnesses view this they 
would want  to classify it as the “Nominative for Exclamation”.

Actually, Jehovah's Witnesses have no problem with seeing hO KURIOS MOU KAI  
hO QEOS MOU as possibly the "Nominative for Vocative."  (Reasoning from the  
Scriptures, p. 213;  Awake! 3/22/72; Watchtower 1/15/92; Awake!  4/22/05)
