When talking to someone, can I use their name in place of "you"? Is this only used when talking a certain way (e.g. to children)? Or is this not done in English at all?
Ann is talking to Bob.
Ann says "I cooked lasagna today"
Bob replies: "I really want to try your cooking!"
Ann says: "I never knew Bob liked lasagna"
If it makes a difference, please consider both the case where other people are also part of the conversation, and the case where Ann and Bob are talking alone.
