8FLiX Has Scripts, Transcripts, Screenplays and Teleplays! What's the Difference?

The noun "script" is an acceptable and widely used word to describe screenplays, teleplays and transcripts. It's not reserved for any single type of media.


A screenplay tells the narrative of the story, dialogue between performers, and details actions and emotions. A screenplay for television is called a teleplay.


According to Writers Guild of America guidelines, "... a television script consists of two distinct parts: story and teleplay." So, the story is the basic narrative and idea, while the teleplay is the written dialogue.


Basically, it's a written version of that which was originally spoken. Transcripts differ from screenplays and teleplays because every spoken word is chronicled. For example, if an actor ad-libs their dialogue, a transcript would include that while a screenplay or teleplay likely would not.
