What is the capital of Tunisia?

What is a noun of direct address in French?

What you’re referring to is known more technically as "vocative case". If you look up "direct address" on Wikipedia you’ll be redirected.

From there, as a Latinate word, the translation is pretty direct: le vocatif.

You could also "reverse engineer" a more word-for-word translation for the original term by using that page’s French description of the term:

l’interpellation directe ou l’invocation d’une personne

(The trick I often use for such things is to look up the English on Wikipedia and then use the language switcher / list of other languages to find the same article on French Wikipedia. This method seems to be pretty reliable for finding standard equivalents for technical jargon.)
