I find it interesting JA can convey information about relationships between characters simply by what they call each other. I’m particularly struck with the way Bingley calls Lizzy and Kitty by their family nicknames soon after he and Jane are engaged (somehow I don’t imagine Darcy doing this or at least not so soon). When Darcy first calls Lizzy “Elizabeth” I find it such an intimate moment – I couldn’t be happier if JA had written a kiss. :o)
