Re: Useage of parmaqqay, loDnal, be'nal My earlier qustion corrected for spelling and terms
From: "Sebastian DuMars" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
<<In e-mails that I receive between other groups I oftens see spouses
refering to one another as parmaqay.
This does not seem correct in a cultual sense as there are specific terms
for husband and wife as well as the bang pong (love name) which are usually
private between partners.
I believe that refering to ones' spouse as parmaqqay would be seen as a
denial of the marriage bond and therefore is a serious insult.
KGT seems to support this although not specifically so I would like to hear
discussion on this topic.>>
There's no reason why there can't be more than one convention. Many Terrans
refer to their loved one as "honey." Others (such as myself) dislike that
habit. I find other names for my /bang/.
