In this paper, we tried to clarify the characteristics of different types of discourse data; scene setting conversation and free conversation by comparing and analyzing two dialect discourses, "Dialect Conversation Conveying Life" and "COJADS" from a quantitative viewpoint. At the time of analysis, the standard Japanese translation texts attached to the dialect texts of both dialect discourses were regarded as common codes, converted into data and analyzed the discourse characteristics. As a result, it was demonstrated empirically that there was a large difference between the part of speech and the form obtained in the scene setting conversation and the free conversation, such as various and abundant interjection words were obtained in the scene setting conversation. We stated that it is necessary to conduct a discourse survey systematically to obtain necessary data according to the purpose of use of the discourses, and to prepare and organize discourses to deepen dialect study.
