Another example from the Durham depositions
By comparing several accounts of the same quarrel (between John Rosse and Ralph Ogle) it becomes clear that the witnesses present the incident in different ways. Ogle denies that the following quarrel ended with him drawing his dagger on Rosse. The first two accounts are quite similar; the pronoun forms which are used are the same:
The third account is the one made by John Rosse himself. According to him, Ogle did not use you but thou in his last question ("what is that thou saith?"):
Hope explains that Rosse changed the pronoun in order to "make Ogle appear more rude, angry and hot-heated, more likely to have drawn his dagger" (Hope, 146).
