Additional Information: This paper is distinctive because it turns the theoretical lens of social semiotics to investigate the methodology of transcription from video footage. Through examination of published transcripts across disciplines (e.g. conversation analysis, discourse analysis, social semiotics and micro-ethnography), it problematizes how embodied social interaction as speech, gesture, gaze and so on is re-presented discretely and in combination as writing, drawing, photographic stills and traced shots. In unsettling what might pass by unnoticed, there are implications for what is gained, lost and foregrounded. Multimodal transcripts, it is argued, reflect the rhetorical and analytical purposes of their makers. Timely in view of increasing use of camcorders in research, this paper offers a fresh approach to critical reflection on transcription practices and a stimulus for debate across the social sciences.
