The preceding vocative marker is perhaps the most common form used in modern Creolese. In its usage, it might be designated a 'proximal vocative' because it tends to be used for people who are within sight of the caller. There is a following vocative marker as well. This is the one which is traditional and still in use, though largely regarded as old-fashioned. It is different from the preceding vocative in that it is used to call to people who are out of sight, as, for example, inside a house or behind a clump of trees. We might deem this a 'distal vocative'.
