Abstract

Numerous studies on dialogical discourse have demonstrated the importance of dynamism, economy, and efficiency in terms of the use of language in this type of discourse (Blum-Kulka, 1983; O’Connell and Kowal, 2012; Clifton, 2016; Skaftun, 2019). The central issue in the linguistic study of the various genres of dialogical discourse (media interviews, political interviews, talks shows, political debates, classroom discourses, etc.) is how the participants use the language to achieve their goals. In this connection, dialogical discourse draws a special interest as it serves as an excellent platform that demonstrates how a balance between explicitness and implicitness could be found for successful social interaction. That is why a typical dialogical discourse depends on the shared knowledge of the participants (Van Dijk, 2014), which leads to the consensus in this type of discourse (Habermas, 1984). This factor is crucial for understanding the nature of dialogical discourse. On the other hand, as is also proposed in some of the papers included in this issue, different facets of dialogism are presented, which may lead to strengthening opposite positions and diverse ideological stands of the participants. Dialogical analysis uses dialogue to understand phenomena beyond communication such as intergroup relations, communication, misunderstandings, trust and
