According to wikipedia, smalltalk is an informal type of discourse that does not cover any functional topics of conversation or any transactions that need to be addressed. For example:
- William: Morning, Paul.
- Paul: Oh, morning, William, how are you?
- William: Fine, thanks. Have a good weekend?
- Paul: Yes, thanks. Catch you later.
- William: OK, see you.
I haven't found a word to describe the opposite: an informal type of discourse that DOES cover a functional topic of conversation or a transaction that need to be addressed.
Could we say "deep talk"? Maybe just "non-smalltalk" is the best option?
