ranka ya daɗe
(Redirected from ranka ya dade)
- A greeting (salutation) to a social superior. Traditionally used to greet superiors and may be used for a boss, or someone socially superior. When used for a king/emir or chief, it would sometimes be Ran Sarki ya daɗe, since a king is never addressed directly. When used to address someone of equal status or someone humble, the response may be tare da kai or tare da naka, indicating the respondent's attempt to elevate the status of the greeter.
