Diamesic Variation in Direct Reported Speech: Representing Orality in Fiction

Abstract : Conveying mimetic dimensions to the reader of fiction is at the core of the representation of speech acts. This is precisely why representing a speaker’s words or thoughts is a challenge: the reporter is in charge of representing oral conversations as accurately as possible using written modes of representation. This study aims to analyse how narratorial intrusion contributes to the representation of the paralinguistic features of oral conversations enacted by characters in dialogues. The research presented here focuses on multimodal communication in dialogues, drawing on a corpus of American and British contemporary fiction for the investigation of diamesic variation.
