What's a metalogue? I don't think it is in the dictionary. But a prologue is something one says in the beginning, to introduce something. An epilogue is something one says after the main action, as a sort of conclusion. A monologue is a prolonged presentation of some kind, spoken by one person. A dialogue is an exchange of ideas between two or more people. I suppose a metalogue would be talking ABOUT things that are happening, from a somewhat elevated perspective. Actually I think most weblogs I read are metalogues. They try to connect up some dots, try to discover clues in information and events, and try to connect that up with something bigger or deeper. Where are we going? What does it mean?

A combination of all communications by all people collectively. My interpretation.

Interesting. I also "created" the word metalogue for myself today. Interesting to know that others have come across it.

I liken it in a way to metadata, data that describes data, at least in terms of a reference point. With this model I see metalogue as being dialogue about dialogue, monologue about monologue, a communication about communication.

So it is not a communication which explores or describes events or physical phenomena, but instead it explores the non-physical, the ideas, the communication itself.

Something like that anyway. Still very grey yet quite concrete in my mind.

Apologies for any typos,
Dylan

See what Gregory Bateson calls a metalogue: http://www.absara.com/index.html/__show_article/_a000014-000459.htm. See you!

I find myself using the word metanarrative to describe the same idea when applied to media when I teach film theory to my students.
