Cultural question; is "mama/mother" used to address any woman of a certain age? Are "sister, father" used in a similar fashion to address people in a respectful way, which I'm assuming is of big importance in Swahili?

Most of the time you would call a woman older than you aunty and a man uncle. Even if you aren't related.
