Hang on. What wisdom are you referring to? I don't remember seeing 
anything that said *joH* without the *-wI'* can't be used in direct 
address all by itself. Did I miss something?

Now, if I /did/ miss something, what's the big deal? Suppose you see 
someone who isn't a lord cross the street and be run over by a bus. Not 
only do you not remember his name, you also can't call him *joH* because 
he isn't one.

So what's the problem? *'eH! mev!*
