English term or phrase:Princess
I need to find a way to say princess other then the english form "princess" please help!!
Explanation: Co^ng Chu'a is the proper way to address a princess. Co^ Nu*o*ng is more on a personal level. Like in the Vietnamese movies, if a peasant wants to speak to the princess he calls her "Cong Chua." However, if a prince (Hoa`ng Tu?*) falls in love with her he calls her "Co Nuong."
Explanation: Actually there are hats and hooks to go with the words if you want to write the word in 100 percent Vietnamese way. These hats and hooks can only be added in word processing programs where Vietnamese fonts can be selected.
- Cong chua is a daughter of a king of a prince,
- Cong nuong is someone like Princess Diana.
