In the first section Dialogue it studies specific drama texts. Drama has been neglected by linguistic studies of literature, and this book develops a new area of literary-linguistic stylistics.

It demonstrates how recent advances in the sociolinguistic analysis of conversation (discourse analysis) can account for readers and audiences intuitions about dramatic dialogue. The second section Discourse uses these studies to develop a powerful and general model of spoken discourse.

As well as accounting for the utterance-by-utterance organization of dramatic texts, it provides a descriptive model for the analysis of naturally occurring conversation. Literary texts and natural conversation are used to illustrate each other.
