Making an object name a declarative

I’m sure I’ve read how to do this somewhere, but…

If I want to be able to call out an NPC’s name as a declarative in order to get his/her attention, is there some clever way to code this either globally or in the NPC class I’ve created?

Or do I have to code each NPC’s name separately as an action/verb in order not to get the “That’s not a verb I recognize.” error when I call out “Bob” and want Bob to react?

Calling is an action applying to one visible thing. Understand "[person]" as calling.

Perfect! Thanks again, Draconis.

Happy to help.
