Terms of Address in Libyan Arabic Compared to Other Arabic Varieties
Abugharsa, ?Azza B.
Online Submission
This paper presents a discussion about the terms of address used mainly in Libyan Arabic, and how they are similar and/or different from the terms used in other Arabic societies. In addition, the current paper describes how the use of such terms is determined by various social factors and perceptions, and how it is emphasized that these titles must always be used in their appropriate contexts. Additionally, this paper provides a discussion regarding the situations in which these titles may vary from formal to less formal, and consequently affect levels of politeness of the whole utterance. Examples are provided on the basis of data cited in previous works of research, and on the author's own experience as a native speaker of Arabic and a citizen of the State of Libya.
