Both French and Arabic forms of address are used in Chad. The Arabic forms of address used in Chad are: Asayid (male) and Asayeda (female). When corresponding to somebody in Arabic, the preposition al (meaning “of”) is often added in front on the family name, whereas this is not used in speech. Thus Idris Adjidé would be addressed in this way in correspondence:
