Linguistic markers

The term 'view-markers' is suggested by the association of authors at Academic Community to call the linguistic markers that indicate focalisation, point of view and perspective, since it implies visual perception, the way of understanding or thinking about something as well as things perceived respectively.

The most frequently encountered type of focalisation in the English narrative works of the Gothic Tradition is internal. Thus internal focalisation may be regarded as dominant due to the amount of examples where it is found (six out of ten), whereas external and zero types may be referred to as subdominant, for they are encountered in one and three fragments out of ten correspondingly.
