I am looking for a way of describing the class of words such as brother, friend, enemy, predecessor, tenant, colleague which describe one person in relation to another, and might be preceded by my, your , his etc.
This would not include word such as idiot, farmer, composer, birdwatcher, author.
It would include words such as teacher in the context "she took an apple for her teacher" but not in the context "Mr Brain is an excellent teacher".
Is there a word or phrase for this?
I want to use it in the phrase:
The Hebrew word "ebed", meaning "servant" is a _________ word. It does not mean servant in the sense of a person doing a particular type of job, it means a servant in relation to his master.
