Title: Address and Reference Terms in Midob (Darfur Nubian)
Author: Bashir, Abeer Mohamed Ali
Abstract: Address/reference terms and social honorifics are linguistic phenomena presumably found in most or all languages. Address terms are words and phrases used for addressing a person. They refer to the interlocutor and thus contain a strong element of deixis.1 Reference terms, on the other hand, are terms that may be used to refer to a person or group of people who may or may not be co-present.2 Address terms may also be used as reference terms, though the term of reference sometimes differs from the term of address, especially among some kinship terms. An example is the Midob reference term éé “mother” and the term of address màá or màákà.
