Television Dramatic Dialogue

Oxford University Press

This is the second 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 ways that audiences respond to the dialogue they witness as part of television productions: how they use it to create their understandings of particular characters in dramatic works, how they show their appreciation of it in blogs and other online forums, how they create their own dialogue in fan fiction, and how certain expressions join the ranks of cultural catchphrases and take on a new life in that context.

Keywords:   audience, understanding, character, catch phrase, fan fiction, blog, forum
