  • 1. Terminology By Zara Bhatti
  • 2. Diegesis Diegesis is a style of fiction storytelling which presents an interior view of a world and is: 1.that world itself experienced by the characters in situations and events of the narrative 2.telling, recounting, as opposed to showing, enacting.
  • 3. Verisimilitude Verisimilitude, in a narrow sense, is the likeness or semblance of a narrative to reality, or to the truth. In a broader sense, verisimilitude refers to the believability of a narrative—the extent to which a narrative appears realistic, likely, or plausible.
  • 4. Connotation/ denotation Connotation- a secondary meaning. The meaning above the obvious Denotation- a primary meaning. The obvious meaning
  • 5. Linguistics Linguistics is the scientific study of language. There are broadly three aspects to the study, which include language form, language meaning, and language in context Language can be understood as an interplay of sound and meaning. The discipline that studies linguistic sound is termed as phonetics, which is concerned with the actual properties of speech sounds and non-speech sounds, and how they are produced and perceived. The study of language meaning, on the other hand, is concerned with how languages employ logic and real-world references to convey, process, and assign meaning, as well as to manage and resolve ambiguity. This in turn includes the study of semantics (how meaning is inferred from words and concepts) and pragmatics (how meaning is inferred from context
  • 6. Semiotics Semiotics, also called semiotic studies and including semiology, is the study of signs and sign processes (semiosis), indication, designation, likeness, analogy, metaphor, symbolism, signification, and communication. Semiotics is closely related to the field of linguistics, which, for its part, studies the structure and meaning of language more specifically. However, as different from linguistics, semiotics also studies non-linguistic sign systems. Semiotics is often divided into three branches: Semantics: Relation between signs and the things to which they refer; their denotata, or meaning Syntactics: Relations among signs in formal structures Pragmatics: Relation between signs and sign-using agents
  • 7. Dubbing Dubbing, or re-recording, is a post-production process used in filmmaking and video production, in which additional or supplementary recording occurs after the original recording stage. The process includes automated dialogue replacement (ADR), also known as additional dialogue recording, in which the original actors re-record and synchronize audio segments. Music is frequently subject to the dubbing process in the post-editing stage of a film or TV show. The term "dubbing" most commonly refers to the substitution of the voices of the actors shown on the screen with those of different performers speaking another language.
  • 8. Sound bridge Sound bridges can lead in or out of a scene. They can occur at the beginning of one scene when the sound from the previous scenes carries over briefly before the sound from the new scene begins. Alternatively, they can occur at the end of a scene, when the sound from the next scene is heard from the next scene is heard before the image appears on the scene. Sound bridges are one of the most common transitions in the continuity editing style, one that stresses the connection between both scenes since their mood (suggested by the music) is still the same.
  • 9. Asynchronous/ synchronous Asynchronous- not existing or occurring at the same time Synchronous- existing or occurring at the same time
