Stychomathia is the term for the arrangement of dialogue which
alternates speakers, line by line.

I've heard it referred to as a "duologue," and one of my Shakespeare
professors (Wally Bost) coined the term "duelogue."

The dialogue style you are talking about is called 'stichomythia'.

What Joanne Walen is describing is stichomythia. There's a lot of it in
the comedies, particularly in scenes between warring lovers.

The term is "stichomythia."  The following definition is from Babette
Deutsch, Poetry Handbook:  A Dictionary of Terms. 4th Ed. (Harper
Perennial, 1974):

stichomythia  Dialogue, in alternating lines, marked by antithesis and
rhetorical repetition; it is used, as in classical Greek drama, in sharp
altercation.  This example is from Hamlet:

Queen:  Hamlet, thou has thy father much offended.
Hamlet:  Mother, you have my father much offended.
Queen:  Come, come, you answer with an idle tongue.
Hamlet:  Go, go, you question with a wicked tongue.

Rhetorically,
Brad Ryner
