In an airplane, the lady attending you is known as the attendant, besides sometimes being called a stewardess or air hostess. What does she do? Just serve you.
Then what is that my maid does? Nothing but serve me. Can I therefore call my maid, my attendant?
What about my other servant? Can I call him my attendant too, since I cannot call a male person my maid?
Is gender the only difference? Then who and what are pages?
I am looking for a clear distinction between these four terms.
