SAYING WHAT YOU MEAN

Language can convey meaning and hide it.  For some examples see:-

Tonight’s post looks at what is really meant by phrases that often come up in fantasy fiction, especially the quest type.

Coded Speech is the title of tonight’s post here and discusses if your characters are smart enough to pick up on the hidden meanings so often contained within what someone says.  What is said is often so very different from what is meant!

This picture was taken by me as I was walking my border collie, the lovely (but sometimes noisy) Mabel. I used the image in a Hidden Hampshire piece for Chandler's Ford Today. Probably my best photo ever of a sunset.
