Linguistics Question: Referring To 'Mister Chair' or 'Madam Chair' for a professor..
Wondering if a linguistics expert can chime in. In a setting where one refers to a chairperson, it's usually 'Mister Chair' and 'Madam Chair'. What if the Chairperson has a PhD or is a professor, where usually instead of saying Mr. Jones, you say Dr. Jones or Prof. Jones -- is it 'Doctor Chair'? Thanks!
