Abstract

The article applies the theory of vocative and ranks in communication to examine the film script "Thau Chin in Siam" and from that the article points out the vocative strategy of the character Thau Chin - Ho Chi Minh when he was in Thailand (1928 -1929). Based on the view of Nguyen Van Khang when dividing forms of vocative in communication into 13 forms, we identify the vocative forms of the character of Thau Chin. Survey results show that the character Thau Chin used 8/13 forms of vocative corresponding to each situation of communication, interlocutors of communication ... Through analyzing forms of vocative, we find that the vocative strategy of the character Thau Chin had a very flexible transition in different situations and with different interlocutors. Based on this result, we initially identify: the communicative culture of the character Thau Chin - Ho Chi Minh was both traditional and modern; both humane and tough, sharp but ingenious.
