Usage notes[edit]

There is some stylistic difference between maga and ön, although both are used with the formal third-person verb forms. For historical reasons, maga is generally held to be somewhat disrespectful or even deprecating between speakers of the same social status and age, though it is still widely used one-sidedly in conversations where one of the speakers is superior in status (e.g. by a teacher). It is also the preferred form of address in more familiar relations and among older generations or those living in rural communities.[2]
