Is there any way to pull out dialogue?
I tried to search for quotation marks but that did not work. In a prior research project we included an utterance-level code for that [Dialogue] so that we could search for any utterance that included dialogue with or without a dialogue carrier phrase. This worked fine, but would be cumbersome for clinical use. Any other ideas would be welcome.
There is currently no better way to flag dialogue than to create a word or utterance level code and call it up in analysis. It would take some programming to have SALT know to include quotation marks in analysis.
Thank you for your inquiry. I wish I had a more efficient way than custom coding.
