A Reader's Guide to Authoir's Jargon 55

the recorded thoughts of a character (and in this case, the POV character). These are sometimes in first person mode (stream-of-consciousness). Interior monologue in third person limited POV is general set off in italics and dialog tagged. If he gives me another piece of jargon to remember, she thought, I'll scream.
