Abstract

This thesis uses linguistic and historical context to analyze the speech in Victorian fiction. Studying the novels The Heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, and Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, the thesis makes use of nineteenth-century texts to demonstrate ideologies and social forces at work during this time.
