Melodic intonation therapy

Versus

Poverty of language manipulation

Show me someone speaking

In a monotone

And I will show you

Someone using language

Rather than intonation

To convey meaning.

(From the gospel according to Thomas)

Quote of the day

To possess another language is to possess another soul.

EMPEROR CHARLEMAGNE - by - ALBRECHT DURER

Thought of the day

Show me someone who is speaking in a monotone and I will show you someone who is using language, rather than intonation, to convey meaning.

Fragments

Clea, Justine,
Mountolive and Balthasar
Antigua, penny, puce
The chair she sat on
The fields of praise
A jug of wine and thou
A dawn chorus under the fig-tree
History of the world out to lunch
The Fauves

Old man in a dry month waiting for rain
