How do we introduce people in Arabic?
I know what to say and how to respond when I meet someone or when I am introduced to another person, but what is a polite way to introduce people to one another? In English, I would say for example:
Jane, this is Fred
Jane, this is my friend/brother/cousin/father/uncle/husband etc, Fred.
In a formal setting I would use surnames also.
Would a direct translation be suitable?
I'd appreciate some suggestions!!! Please give your responses in فصحى العربية.
