Soaps do tend to follow social trends, but in some cases, and this may be one of them, they create them as well.

I don;t watch soaps at all, but in the days when I did, I managed to ignore the standard drama factors that mean the dialogue flows - no-one coughs or sneezes, or forgets what they are saying, or chokes on food or drink, or goes into a room and forgets why, or snaps their fingers while they search for an elusive word .... this list goes on and on.

So this new speech pattern is maybe one more that soap devotees are going to have to assimilate into their enjoyment.

Yes they do all of that, in the outtakes

They wouldn't be able to leave things like that in as the other actors would automatically burst out laughing and that would go in the outtakes bin.
They could of course have things like that written into the script to make it seem more real.

Actually, no they couldn;t.

The reason why standard aspects of interaction, such as those I mentioned, are ommitted is because they would slow down the dramatic pace.

You can't have an argument in a soap - and soaps are often little less than a series of arguments, if the dialogue doesn't flow seamlessly - the distraction would drag the tempo and interupt the tension and drama.

It's the way any drama has to operate, it just seems all the more arteificial when soaps are supposed to be 'real life' writ large.
