Abstract:

 

The absurd plays of Harold Pinter are undoubtedly puzzling and enigmatic. It is a difficult task to decipher the meaning of the ambivalent dramatic dialogue in his plays. Pinter’s departure from the conventional dramatic style and his experiment with a new language of theatre marks his originality and greatness as a playwright. The introduction of various theories and frameworks of disciplines, such as, Discourse Analysis, Conversation Analysis and Pragmatics, towards the late 1970s and early 1980s, have immensely impacted the analysis of situations and characters in a dramatic text. This research paper examines and analyses selected dialogue extracts from Pinter’s full-length play The Homecoming (1965) by using the various variables of the turn-taking system. This study examines both the aspects of turn-taking – turn allocational component and turn-constructional component – proposed by the Conversation Analysts in order to facilitate better interpretation of this dramatic text.

 

Key Words: Turn-allocational component, turn-constructional component, absurdity, conversation analysis and homecoming.
