This chapter develops a multimodal method for transcribing speech, communication, and performance. The chapter discusses the methodological solutions to the complex translation of speech, language rhythm and gesture in time and space into the two-dimensional format of a piece of paper. The focus is on orally performed literature and its pedagogical implications. The chapter thoroughly examines relevant theories and discusses methodological issues of research in language, literature, and cultural performance. Current themes within social semiotics, metrical studies, ethnography of speaking, narratology, voicedness, and gesture studies are considered.
