One of the most outstanding aspects of reading aloud that was heavily used by Dickens is the way Dickens represented the character’s speech in various novel settings. The main aim of John Huffam Dickens was to enable readers and listeners to distinguish between fictional dialogue and natural speech. Lai-Ming (2008) points out that a high level of orality can be achieved only if the fictional dialogue closely follows an instance of natural speech. Upon realizing the difficulty in elaborating these aspects of speech, Dickens came up with a unique approach to ensuring that both readers and listeners would be able to understand the distinction between various words and improve their oral skills as well. Some of the explicit markers employed by literary Scholar John Huffam Dickens include narrative comments, punctuation, and phonetic spellings. In certain instances, Lai-Ming (2008) argues that all the explicit markers would be applied at the same time, often creating a unique sense of speech that was not only appealing to the audience but also offers a clear idea of the message being passed across. The writings of Dickens were tailored to meet even the needs of the illiterate readers who were in charge of the reading aloud session and listeners who experienced challenges with reading and comprehension. The works of Dickens during the Victorian era have also been criticized by other literary scholars from a similar viewpoint, and as such as the works of Dickens have not been exclusively studied and recognized in the context of reading aloud.
