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.
