One is the power semantic, meaning that T or V were used depending on the superiority of the receiver. Power semantics are nonreciprocal, as two people can not have the same power in an area; the superior addresses the inferior with T and the inferior uses V in return. For people with roughly the same power other rules do apply. Here, what Brown and Gilman call solidarity semantics come into play. The most important factor is not who is superior to whom but how close the interacting people are on a social level and if they have something in common.
As one might already have thought there are cases in which both, the power semantic and the solidarity semantic are applicable; parents will be superior but solidary and a waiter in a restaurant will be inferior but remote. In those cases, up until the nineteenth century the power semantic predominated and the waiter would accordingly been addressed as T. Newer evidence suggests that in the twentieth century the solidarity semantic has become the dominant force.
Before the seventieth century this was also the case in English cf. Jucker and Taavitsainen, , p. Over the course of time, however, this distinction was lost, and you remained as the only pronoun which can be used to address familiar and socially distant persons.
How did this loss come about? In Old English2 , the English pronoun system consisted of a detailed system of personal pronouns3 similar to the one we have in Modern German. The distinc- tion between distant and familiar pronouns was not very common at this time, and distance or politeness was expressed through nominal address cf. Jucker and Taav- itsainen, , p. The personal pronouns in the Germanic languages. Berlin, New York: Walter de Gruyter. Wales, , p. Still the English moved quite freely between those two forms cf. The reason for this late onset is, as Finken- staedt says the conflict between English people and the French conquerors.
In the beginning there was no mixing between the two populations and also the languages where used for different domains. The English language was used by the common people, French at court and in law, and Latin, as a third language, was used in reli- gious contexts. After several decades marriages between French people and English people became more common and eventually, different aspects of language where taken on in the English language. Thomas, , p. Another reason for this change, at the time when marriages between French men and English woman became common, is quite definitely, that women of the middle class tend to over- adapt the speaking behaviour of the higher classes, in their aspiring for a better so- cial status.

Burnley, , p. As said above, ME has moved between you and thou relatively free, especially in literature. A text in which was used to show this on several accounts are The Canterbury Tales. This is a common stylistic device, which will be employed also in Early Modern English and is also used by Shakespeare in many of his works. Quirk, , p. Jucker and Taavitsainen take 4 From now on referred to as ME. For an easier understanding in this paper you and thou will stand for all their inflectional forms, as long as inflection is still present in the English language.
Even thou Shakespeare uses you and thou to mark emotions, attitude or social status in his play, the Early Mod- ern Period is the turning point in the use of second person pronouns and leads to the loss of thou in normal speech and to the emerge of you as the normal and unmarked form of address.

Kathleen Wales gives several reasons for this change which will be explained below. The first reason for the loss of thou is actually the same as one of the reason for the rise of you in Middle English. It became fashionable to use you and there- fore it was used by more and more people in formal and public speech while thou became marginalised and reserved for private communication and communication among people of the lower classes.
In the sixteenth century there was a desire for a standard- ised language in writing and in speaking, the language of the capital was set as the standard. People seeing themselves as educated disapproved of dialects, where thou was prevalent, and used the standard, which meant using you. The use of you then spread through the social ranks, as servants started to imitate their superiors, most probably in the desire to sound more educated and been seen as a person with higher social status.
This resulted in difficulties in identifying who was socially superior to whom. The next two reasons are some- what connected. In the early seventeenth century the Quakers emerged, a radical and and religious group, that favoured brotherhood and social equality cf. As many people in seventeen century England opposed the Quakers and similar groups, they started to avoid using thou to not be associated with them.
In the Bible translation thou was established as the pronoun of address for God, and thus became even more marked and reserved for special use, respectively religious context. All those reasons lead to a decline in the use, and eventual loss, of thou and left it as a pronoun used in dialect, religion and as a marked form in poetry and drama cf. The use of pronouns and address terms in his works have received a good amount of attention, for example by Qurik and Busse , who will be referred to in this paragraph.
As said before, Shakespeare uses thou and also you to mark emotion such as anger or intimacy. Here you is the unmarked form, where as thou is the marked form. They do only gain the connotation in contrast to each other in context, and you can also become the marked form in situations where thou was expected. Busse conducted research on the co- relation between address terms and the pronouns you and thou.
He distinguished between six different categories of adress terms, three co-relate with you, three with thou. While terms of endearment, terms of abuse and generic terms of address collocate with the former, kinship terms, occupational terms of address and titles of courtesy collocate with the latter. Busse, , cf.
This again shows, that emotional involvement plays an important role in the use of thou in Shakespeares plays. A last aspect that should briefly be talked about, when investigating the use of you and thou in EME is the use of the second person pronouns in texts other than drama plays, which are hopefully closer to actual speech at this time.
Spyri, a devout Christian, projects a vision of a harmonious world which can only be held together by Judeo-Christian ethics and God himself. Briefly, her story concerns a five-year-old orphan, Heidi, who is sent to live on top of a Swiss mountain with her grandfather, a social outcast. After three years, her aunt, who works in Frankfurt, comes to fetch her so that she can become a companion to a rich little girl who is crippled. Both the aunt and the rest of the Swiss village think it will be better for Heidi, for they have a low opinion of the grandfather and feel that Heidi needs to be educated.

For the grandfather, who has come to love Heidi deeply, this is a devastating blow, and he becomes more of a misanthrope. In Frankfurt, Heidi turns a wealthy bourgeois household upside down with her natural ways, which are contrasted with the artificial and decadent ways of the city people. Nevertheless, she endears herself to the grandmother, Klara the cripple, the businessman father, and their servants.
Only the governess and teacher cannot grasp her "wild" ways. Eventually, Heidi becomes homesick for the mountains, and Klara's grandmother tells her to have faith in God, who will always help her. Indeed, as Heidi begins to wane, God interferes in the person of the doctor, who advises the businessman to return Heidi to the grandfather. When Heidi is sent back to the mountains, the grandfather is ecstatic and becomes convinced that it was an act of God which brought about the return of his granddaughter.
In this sense, Heidi is God's deputy and reconciles the grandfather to the rest of the community. Although there are abridged versions for younger children, Heidi was essentially written for the child ten and over.
Quite opposite to Struwwelpeter , it concerns the experiences of a little girl, who is made into some kind of an extraordinary angel, a nature child with holy innocence, incapable of doing evil, gentle, loving, and kind. At first, she does not comprehend the world, but as she grows, everything is explained to her according to the accepted social and religious norms of the day. Here it is important to see the pedagogical purpose of the narrative and its dependence on the traditional Bildungsroman. Heidi learns that the world is static and directed by God. Although she is disturbed that her grandfather and relatives are poor and must struggle merely to subsist, the grandmother in Frankfurt brings her to believe that God wants it that way and that material poverty is insignificant when one considers the real meaning of richness: to be rich means possessing faith in God and behaving like a good Christian—that is, making sacrifices to benefit the wealthy and looking forward to paradise in the world hereafter.
While the simple, pious community of the Swiss village is contrasted with the false, brutal life in the city, Spyri does nothing to explain the real contradictions between city and country. The hard life in the Swiss mountains becomes idyllic. There the people are pure and closer to God. The world of Switzerland caters to the escapist tendencies of readers who might seek release from the perplexing, difficult conditions of urban life.
Heidi, too, is a figure of the infantile, regressive fantasy which desires a lost innocence that never was.
