Television Dramatic Dialogue

Kay Richardson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The starting point for this chapter is a set of questions about the specificity of this particular form of talk. Does dialogue on television differ from other kinds of talk? What, if anything, makes it distinctive? What should TV dialogue be compared with, in order to answer these questions? Because the key characteristics of television dramatic dialogue are that it is mediated and also representational, the chapter compares TV dialogue with unscripted, naturally occurring talk, as well as with dialogue in other representational modes, and with unscripted media talk.
