Even if the primacy of spoken language seems to be generally accepted today, specif-ic characteristics of orality are rarely taken into account in scientific descriptions of syntactic structure. What is more, analyses of oral speech generally call upon categories developed for the description of written language. However, the production of spoken language is subject to specific conditions which differ profoundly from that of written language, i.e. it is multimodal, it is process oriented, it is intrinsically contextualized, it is interactive when put to dialogical use. Based on these distinguishing conditions of speech production, the article discusses lexical and syntactic features of orality as well as phenomena of dialogical discourse production and organiza-tion. It comes to the conclusion that the structure of oral language is by no means to be described as deviant from a written norm. On the contrary, it displays its own specific norm, which might have a common interface with written language in some domains, but which also differs and even considerably goes beyond the norm estab-lished for written language.
