Television Dramatic Dialogue

Kay Richardson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This is the first of two chapters that situate television dramatic dialogue in a wider social context by looking at how it (a) comes into being and (b) is received and used by audiences. This chapter focuses on the role of the screenwriter in the creation process, paying attention to the sociocultural conditions in which screenwriting takes place, and the craft knowledge that this gives rise to. Some comparisons are drawn between the terms that sociolinguists use to refer to certain kinds of interactive phenomena and the terms that are used within the industry.
