This study considers the relationship between form and meaning in literature by
looking at the use of deixis in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The study takes
insights from pragmatics to focus on personal, social and discourse deixis and uses
quantitative and qualitative methods to analyse the frequency of personal pronouns,
proximity pronouns and titles and to consider how deixis affects the themes of
emotional relations, social class and the role of women. The frequency of personal
pronouns and titles in Pride and Prejudice was compared with the British National
Corpus and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Findings of both the quantitative
and qualitative analysis indicate that the way selected language forms are used
reflects how emotional relationships develop in the novel, the social status of the
characters and the role of women in Pride and Prejudice. The study goes on to discuss
how deixis and themes relate to the literary techniques of irony and to a lesser extent
ambiguity.

Bu çalışma, Jane Austen’in Aşk ve Gurur isimli romanında deiksis (dış bağlamsal yapı;
gösterim) kullanımından yola çıkarak edebiyatta biçim ve anlam ilişkisini inceler.
Çalışmada edimbilimden faydalanarak kişisel, toplumsal ve söylem deiksisi
incelenmiş ve kişi zamirleri, yakınlık zamirleri ve unvanların sıklığını ölçmek için nicel
yöntemler kullanılmıştır. Bunun yanı sıra, deiksisin duygusal ilişkiler, sosyal sınıf ve
kadının rolü üzerindeki etkisini incelemek için nitel yöntemler kullanılmıştır. Aşk ve
Gurur romanındaki kişi zamiri ve unvan kullanımının sıklığı British National Corpus
ve Charles Dickens’in Büyük Umutlar eseri ile karşılaştırılmıştır. Nicel ve nitel
incelemelerin sonucu seçilen dil biçimlerinin romanda duygusal ilişkilerin gelişimini,
sosyal sınıfı ve kadınların rolünü yansıtacak şekilde kullanıldığını göstermektedir.
Çalışma deiksis ve temaların edebi tekniklerden ironi ve daha düşük oranda
belirsizlikle ilişkisinden de bahseder.
