Abstract:Starting from a corpus of old Romanian texts (the 16th c. and the 17th c. until 1640), we present the distribution and use of the vocative markers: morphological endings and lexical-pragmatical markers (interjections marking the address). A vocative noun could have all these types of markers or only some of them. Our research on the vocative markers in old Romanian has shown that the morphological endings of the vocative in old Romanian were present in many contexts, especially in the singular, unlike the contemporary language, where the unmarked forms are preferred (with some exceptions). We have found forms which are no longer employed in the contemporary language. The research has helped identify an interjectional marker of the vocative case, o ‘oh’, which in some case doubles the morphological marker.
