Abstract:

This study investigates the functions, meanings, and varieties of forms of
address in Shakespeare's dramatic work. New categories of Shakespearean
vocatives are developed and the grammar of vocatives is investigated in,
above, and below the clause, following morpho-syntactic, semantic,
lexicographical, pragmatic, social and contextual criteria. Going beyond
the conventional paradigm of power and solidarity and with recourse to
Shakespearean drama as both text and performance, the study sees vocatives
as foregrounded experiential, interpersonal and textual markers.
Shakespeare's vocatives construe, both quantitatively and qualitatively,
habitus and identity. They illustrate relationships or messages. They
reflect Early Modern, Shakespearean, and intra- or inter-textual contexts.
Theoretically and methodologically, the study is interdisciplinary. It
draws on approaches from (historical) pragmatics, stylistics, Hallidayean
grammar, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, socio-historical
linguistics, sociology, and theatre semiotics. This study contributes,
thus, not only to Shakespeare studies, but also to literary linguistics and
literary criticism.

"Beatrix Busse's erudite study of vocatives in Shakespeare's plays will be
of considerable interest to scholars and advanced students studying
Shakespeare, Stylistics and/or Early Modern English. Her use of a careful
corpus-based approach enables her to be systematic in her examination of
forms of address in Shakespeare's plays and to provide useful quantitative
analysis to support her arguments. She balances this quantitative analysis
with stimulating and detailed qualitative accounts of the pragmatic and
sociolinguistic meanings associated with particular vocatives and vocative
types in context." Professor Mick Short, Lancaster University, UK 

"This is an ambitious investigation of vocatives in a carefully selected
corpus of Shakespeare's plays. It is highly innovative and convincing in
its combination of theories and extensive use of historical and
contemporary sources. Moreover, it successfully challenges the reader to
think across the boundaries between linguistic and literary studies and,
although its emphasis is on forms of address, many of the excellent
analyses -especially of individual passages, scenes or characters- offer
exciting and new insights into the plays on the page as well as on the stage." 
Dr. Marga Munkelt, University of M√ľnster, Germany
