What did Grunt, who is your master, the fellow in the broad-brimmed hat, call you?
“What did Grunt, who is your master, the fellow in the broad-brimmed hat, call you?” I asked.
“’Wicincala’,” she said, “which means ‘Girl’, and ‘Amomona’, which means ‘Baby’ or ‘Doll’.”
“I see,” I said. I myself prefer the application of such expressions not to slaves, but to pretentious free women, to remind them that they, in spite of their freedom, are only women. They are useful, by the way, in making a free woman uneasy, their use suggesting to her that perhaps the male is considering shortly enslaving her. In speaking to a slave I prefer expressions such as ‘Slave’ or ‘Slave Girl’, or the girl’s name itself, she understanding clearly, of course, that it is only a slave name. “And what did you call him?” I asked.
“’Wicayuhe’, ‘Itancanka’,” she said, “words which mean‘Master’.”
