Abstract It is shown that the dielectric friction effect derived by Fatuzzo and Mason and by Nee and Zwanzig for a rigid dipole dielectric is of the same form as that of a harmonic oscillator dielectric satisfying the usual Clausius-Mossotti type complex permittivity. A pseudo-oscillator model is proposed which describes as particular limiting cases the harmonic oscillator dielectric, the plasma, and the high frequency end of the complex permittivity of a dielectric of rigid but rotationally strongly damped dipoles. Dielectric friction is shown to provide the long range coupling required to produce the collective plasma oscillations of a plasma.
