And I accidentally replied off list:
Discourse is too general.
In philosophy and theology a discourse can mean "teaching", as in
"Levinas' discourse about 'the other' has made alterity a recurring
theme in all modern philosophy" or "pentecostal theology is defined by
its discourse about the charims".
I would not associate <discourse> with a spoken list-like dialog. That
would be way too narrow.
