In Serrano’s Diez mujeres, nine Chilean women from different social classes tell their stories. I study the linguistic phenomena which are used to describe these characters. With the help of dictionaries, descriptions of Chilean Spanish and the corpus analysis program AntConc I discover that Serrano uses, among others, verbal voseo, apocopes and diminutives to characterize the characters of low socioeconomic class while the use of English and references to writers, painters and musicians feature the stories of the characters of high socioeconomic class.
