Function and form of the Spanish nominal vocative: between production and cognition

This project aims to provide a multivariate analysis of the nominal vocative in contemporary Spanish (e.g. Hola, Sara U+2018Hey, SaraU+2019) from a cognitive-functional, usage-based perspective. The formal and functional productivity of the Spanish nominal vocative expressions will be scrutinized in light of (socio)linguistic, situational variables, and personality traits of the speakers.
