I want to translate the phrase as "who hear the mistress herself calling". I think that this is wrong because instead of 'suam', it should instead be 'sē' for that translation to be correct.

But I think trying to figure everything out from context is too extreme. It causes much confusion and possibly demotivation with little practical benefit.
