Language as Narrative Voice: The Poetics of the Highly Inflected Screenplay.
Rush, Jeff; Baughman, Cynthia
Journal of Film and Video, v49 n3 p28-37 Fall 1997
Explores how inferential or evocative language functions to determine meaning and focus in screenplays. Demonstrates that, although "shooting scripts" might be read as instructions, "screenplays" can be understood only as a form of writing that communicates its meaning through the connotative nuances of language. Shows how narrative voice can be expressed through the use of screenplay language. (PA)
