This paper is an attempt to present the quantitative characteristics of the use of dative pronouns in various types of Russian and Bulgarian texts (drama, fiction, publicistic and political journalism, and scientific texts). When contrasted, the frequency of use of dative pronouns in the same styles of Russian and Bulgarian has shown that dative pronouns are more frequent in all the types of Bulgarian texts, since Bulgarian is characterized not only by the adverbial dative use of pronouns but also by their adnominal dative use. In this respect the two languages differ considerably. There is a marked difference between Russian and Bulgarian drama and fiction texts even when the frequency of the dative pronouns is compared in a function that is common to both languages, whereas publicistic and scientific texts do not differ in this case.
