What is oral
interpretation?
An oral interpretation can
apply to any type of writing,
from poetry to prose, from
fiction to non-fiction, from
humorous to dramatic. The
performers will interpret the
lines of text to deduce what
key emotion they want to
convey, and they will give
their vocal delivery based on
that emotion.
The idea
of oral interpretation was
born from the desire to give
texts more character and
emotion beyond a dry, flat, or
monotone delivery.
What is oral interpretation?
Depends less on the actual text
and more on the reader's
performance.
This allows the reader to
transform the words into any
mood he or she wishes to achieve.
Oral Interpretation
The way performer delivers
the text can enhance or
detract from what's written
by stressing ideas or
emotions of the reader's
choosing, rather than those
of the author.
