    Summary

    This is an analysis of the speech patterns of the main characters in The Old Guard. I’ve focused on syntax, although I’ve also looked at pragmatics and semantics, as well as sociolinguistics to a smaller extent. For each of the characters I’ve talked about contraction usage, colloquialisms, phrases, verb and verb tense usage, ellipses, sentence composition, adjective and adverb frequency, discourse markers and fillers, profanity, vocabulary(ish), and questions.

    Summary

    “What are you doing?” he mouthed into Nicky’s thigh.

    “Watching you sleep.”

    “What else are you doing?”

    “Rewriting King Lear,” Nicky said. His voice was plagued with distraction. Joe pulled himself up enough to see the page; Act II ran red with slashed words. His lover’s eyes were the color of the sky just before a tornado touched down.

    Summary

    At over seven-hundred and fifty, he fears he has started to forget what mortality feels like. He sees death everywhere he goes, in all forms. Sometimes it is natural, predicted. Sometimes it is merciful, and sometimes it is violent and cruel. Almost never does it exist in the realm of the unknown.
    Where do people go when they vanish? How long must they be gone before others declare them dead?
    To vanish as a mortal is to surrender to a death sentence, it seems. People do not vanish. They die.
    Where does that leave his family, if they defy death?

    Or:

    In winter, 1832, Nicolas and Sébastien are hired to guard a family of fur traders as they make their voyage to Alaska, when disasters occur and they become lost in the wilderness. Nicolas finds a letter from Yusuf telling of Sébastien's wife's sudden death and he must swear to keep it a secret while he navigates their way back to their family, against the elements and the fragility of the human mind.
