An utterance is an oral statement made by a speaker while addressing an addressee. This oral statement is a verbal statement or a non-verbal statement. The verbal statements are used for interpersonal communication in a series of turn-taking turns by the communicator. In the context of such communicative utterances, it has become essential to make use of some distinctive markers or some definite indicators. These are the pointers to the context. The term used for such markers of person, or indicators of place or time and the pointers of discourse or social status is Deixis. The deictic expressions are the pronouns like I, WE, HE, SHE, THEY, or the demonstrative place pointers like HERE, THERE or time indicators like NOW, THEN, TONIGHT, TODAY or Social deictic expressions or Discourse deictic expressions. In a play, the use of dialogue is made. Dialogues are utterances orally and verbally uttered by a specific addressor addressing a particular addressee. This necessitates the use of personal pronouns, demonstrative pointers or place and time indicators or Social and Discourse deictic expressions. Indian English Drama in the later twentieth century has established itself with its distinctive identity and Girish Karnad has contributed a lot to its development. The dramatist has handled the dramatic element of dialogue superbly. Three plays by Girish Karnad are selected for analyzing the Social and Discourse deictic expressions as indicators of the social status of the addressee and the status of the discourse itself in the contextual framework of the action of the play. The statement of the research is made below:
