NIETO CABALLERO, Guadalupe. Functional patterns of the vocative in the narrative production of Benito Pérez Galdós. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2021, n.43, pp.447-466. ISSN 0716-5811.

This article presents Benito Pérez Galdós' use of vocatives as the axis of a structural pattern with which the writer manages to create various significant literary effects. We have focused on those cases in which a projecting proposition is followed by a vocative (pronounced by a character). For this we have resorted to a corpus made up of Galdós's novels, which we have compared with another corpus as reference made up of several nineteenth-century Spanish novels. As will be seen, the pattern is not only used more frequently in Galdós' novels, but the writer uses it for specific stylistic purposes such as creating an impression of synchronicity between the characters' speech and their body language or providing information about the characters. The analysis is intended to be a contribution to the still emerging field of corpus stylistics in Spanish, illustrating how the analysis of literary works can greatly benefit from the use of innovative corpus tools.

Palabras clave : corpus stylistics; Galdós; Spanish literature; vocative.
