Abstract: Previous research pointed out pragmatic features of the third personal forms of Guanzhong dialect,“他”express negative evaluation of the speakers while“人家”refer to positive , “兀”is unlimited to the subjective attitude. This research then devote to investigate other context factors influencing the choice of the third person forms such as the physical distance, social distance and the psychological distance between the speaker and the referent of the third person form. Finally, this paper comes to a conclusion.(1)When used as neutral attitude, we can distinguish“他”and“兀”form the physical distance between the speaker and the referent of the third person form;(2)When both used to express negative attitude, the referent of“他”is more close to the speaker than the the referent of“兀”.(3)When used as positive attitude, the use of“人家”express stronger subjective feelings than the use of “兀”.
