Hi!
I have to know more about this word"fellow"

I have heard fellow friends/ students before.
Actually I am confused by the using of fellow even after checking dictionary, because it is used too wisely,futhermore our dictionary only give us the meaning of it and doesn't show much about it.

I mean that it doesn't show us that where it's used(like to person you known or person you are very familiar with or person you don't know and so on).

I actually don't know how to differentiate the using of fellow , guy and dude.

Could anybody help me with it?
Many thanks in advance

I also hope to how which of them can be used as a title like fellow Ong or so on.
Order from less to more informal: fellow, guy, dude. Only fellow is used as an adjective (as in 'fellow students', where its register is neutral).

Thanks,

Is it inpolite to call my miss(teacher), Hi my fellow teacher.
What is the function and meaning when fellow is used as an adjective?
I can't see any meaning of the wprd "fellow" in these sentences my fellow friends/students.
Can I call my mum fellow?
Who do we use this word to call?

I think it's a hard word to master.
Many thanks in advance
Is it inpolite to call my miss(teacher), Hi my fellow teacher.-- Are you a teacher? In any case, it is odd as direct address.

What is the function and meaning when fellow is used as an adjective?-- It means 'belonging to the same class or group; united by the same occupation, interests, etc.; being in the same condition: fellow students; fellow sufferers.'
I can't see any meaning of the wprd "fellow" in these sentences my fellow friends/students.-- See above.

Can I call my mum fellow?-- No

Who do we use this word to call?-- It is not used in direct address except jocularly.
Thanks!

Do you mean that we use it in very informal situation like when we are talking to our roomates or call my classmate.

For example.
I am the monitor of my class.
Me: Hi! My fellow students/friends please listen to me. I have something to ask you. Do you all want to have a class outings this sunday?

I am the boyfriend of Mary
Me: Hi fellow girlfriend! Would you like to go for lunch with me tonight?

I am one of the members of yoga society
Me: Hi fellow(his is the another member), do you want to go for a practice with me this Sunday?

Many thanks in advance
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
You are confusing the adjective with the noun; the noun does not relate to another member of a class or group. It doesn't work in individual direct address. 'Hi my fellow students' is OK, but rather stilted. The others are no good.
If you are going to use the adjective "fellow" then it is only when you are in the same category as them.

The President of the United States say "My fellow Americans." Someone from France or China cannot say that.

A student refers to the students who are in the same class as "My fellow students" (in a speech, not in any sort of normal conversation).

If I am a teacher, I may say "My fellow teachers and I are going to a seminar."

In common language, it's not used very often!

(By the way, I hate "Dude." I think it's SO disrespectful.)
An interesting topic.Thanks for arising it.
What about word "guy"? Can it be applied only to male? How does it sound according to before-mentioned hierarchy?
