Types of Dialogue

 On the basis of the formality introduced in the dialogues, they can be classified as formal and informal.

Formal Dialogue: Formal dialogue takes place in formal situations such as seminars, programmes, classes etc. As regards language forms, full and normative structures are used in the formal dialogues. The relation between the characters is also formal. Sir/ Madam/ Miss/Mrs/ etc are used to address the participants. Formal speech or behaviour is very correct and serious rather than relaxed and friendly, and is used especially in officially situations.

Informal dialogue: Informal dialogue takes place in  informal situations suh as 'talk' between two friends about their study, exam, game etc. In informal dialogues, contracted forms seem to be more suitable because they make the dialogues life-like. The characters converse informally addressing by the first name or relation.
