wa'Hu' 'ay' "Direct address" vIlaDqa'.
ngoDHeyvam maqlaw' 'ay'vam (pp. 202-203).

Describing "maqoch" and "chaj", KGT (pp. 202-203)
focuses solely on who would address whom while using
these two words. Nothing is said about whether they
can also be used when talking *about* our or somebody
else's friends.

So: chaq muj qechwIj. chaq mujbe'.
