Abstract:

How did Romans address their children, their parents, their slaves,
and their patrons? When one Roman called another "dearest," "master,"
"brother," "human being," "executioner," or "soft little cheese," what
did these terms really mean and why? This book brings to bear on such
questions a corpus of 15,441 addresses spanning four centuries, drawn
from literary prose, poetry, letters, inscriptions, ostraca, and
papyri and analyzed using recent work in sociolinguistics. Including a
glossary of the 500 most common addresses and quick-reference tables
explaining the rules of usage, this original and highly readable work
will be enjoyed even by those with no prior knowledge of Latin.
