Title: Dramatic Discourse - Dialogue As Interaction in Plays
Written By: Vimala Herman

Vimala Herman argues that drama should be of particular interest to linguists because of its form, dialogue and subsequent translation into performance. Each chapter in the book contains a theoretical section in which major concepts of each framework are explained. Herman draws from classic textual examples using ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, and, through these methods, is able to explore dramatic issues such as time in language, power and gender.
