The paper intends to study the management of Common Ground (CG) in the dialogues of Roman tragedies. It focuses on dialogues in which the speakers cannot understand each other and explores the role which CG plays in communications fraught with such difficulties. Corpus for this case study is taken from tragic dialogues, as tragedy deals with difficulties which mostly do not get resolved, with contrasts which cannot be agreed upon: this literary genre convention is a promising source of examples for a research focussing on problems in handling communications.

Abstract

The paper intends to study the management of Common Ground (CG) in the dialogues of Roman tragedies. It focuses on dialogues in which the speakers cannot understand each other and explores the role which CG plays in communications fraught with such difficulties. Corpus for this case study is taken from tragic dialogues, as tragedy deals with difficulties which mostly do not get resolved, with contrasts which cannot be agreed upon: this literary genre convention is a promising source of examples for a research focussing on problems in handling communications.
