Mark 5:41

Mark translates or interprets TAL[E]ITHA as TO KORASION at 5:41. I
understand that TAL[E]ITHA can mean "lamb". Would that simply be an
affectionate use of the word, or is there something else behind it? While
I'm at it - presumably, TO KORASION is vocative - is it common for the
vocative to include the definite article?

Any comments?
