Direct Speech in Beowulf and Other Old English Narrative Poems
4
 
 
Direct Speech in Beowulf and Other Old English Narrative PoemsSome of the most celebrated passages of Old English poetry are speeches: Beowulf and Unferth's verbal contest, Hrothgar's words of advice, Satan's laments, Juliana's words of defiance, etc. Yet Direct Speech, as a stylistic device, has remained largely under-examined and under-theorized in studies of the corpus. As a consequence, many analyses are unduly influenced by anachronistic conceptions of Direct Speech, leading to problematic interpretations, not least concerning irony and implicit characterisation. This book uses linguistic theories to reassess the role of Direct Speech in Old English narrative poetry.

The Tiny Talk Baby Signing DVD - Let's sign!The Tiny Talk Baby Signing DVD - Let's sign!

Baby signing is pre-verbal communication with your child using visual clues (signs) before they can talk. These signs help babies make sense of the words they hear as they look at things around them. They also begin to use them to tell you what they want or what they are thinking about. 
Baby signing gives children a way to express their needs before they are physically able to form spoken words. It gives them a structure on which to build their development of the spoken word. Babies can begin to sign back to you from as young as seven months old.
Learn 150 baby signs, clearly demonstrated and brought to life with imagery and music.
