The Transactional Dialogue: Misjudged, Misused, Misunderstood.
Taborn, Stretton
ELT Journal, v37 n3 p207-12 Jul 1983
Although the kind of transactional dialogue used in everyday trade can be of potentially great value, those found in textbooks tend to be of limited usefulness because they are unrealistically long, complex, formal, and descriptive, overuse atypical structures or vocabulary, and assume an understanding of the culture.
