Chapter Six Respones

Post by SamZiegler on Sun May 28, 2017 11:27 am

Key Details
Which details support the key idea? Look for the who? What? When? Where? Why? How Much? How Many?
The key idea is that the "beast" is inside of the boys, and that it is not something they can hunt or kill. This is supported on page 103, where Golding wrote, "However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human at once heroic and sick." This detail is easily missed if the reader isn't paying close attention, and it reveals a lot about the beast. Simon sees the beast as a human that is heroic and sick. This can be interpreted to symbolize Jack, who is heroic in his own mind because he believes that he is doing the right thing, and who may be sick because of his lust for power and control. This would fit with the description of the beast that the Lord of the Flies gives Simon later in the book, and the beast truly is inside one of them. Also, the island symbolizes the mindsets of the boys, with the beach where Ralph, Piggy, and Simon reside being described as "... a sunbath under a blue dome." The cave where Jack leads his group is the opposite, made of shattered rocks, and smelling like rotten eggs. This shows how Ralph wants things on the island to be versus how Jack wants things to be.
Inferences
Whose story/perspective is not represented?
Throughout chapter six, we never get to see what is happening with Piggy and the littluns. I believe that this is done for a couple of reasons. The first reason is just that Piggy's perspective probably wasn't entertaining, especially compared to the adventure that the other older boys went on. If you were Golding, it would be an easy choice, writing about the adventure to the other side of the island versus Piggy and the littluns on the beach. The second reason is that I think since Piggy is easily the most intelligent person on the island, that might take some of the fear away from a chapter that heavily focuses on fear. Piggy doesn't believe in the beast, and I think that even after Sam and Eric see it, Piggy probably isn't totally convinced. Using his perspective might lead to him saying something like, I think the beast is fake. This would completely change the mood of the chapter, and leave a doubt in our heads about the beast.  
Golding uses the title, Beast from Air, for chapter six. This is done because of the dead pilot who parachuted out of his plane, whom Sam and Eric mistaken for the beast while they are tending to the fire. This is the basis of the whole chapter, as it motivates the older boys to go explore the island to try and find the beast. This also convinces the remaining doubters, except possibly Piggy and Simon, that there is something else on the island with them. This makes everyone nervous, and sets up Jack's mutiny from the tribe, as now the kids begin to only care about safety from the beast.
Fitful (pg. 96) Here the breeze was fitful and allowed the strings of the parachute to tangle and festoon...
If something is fitful, it is not regular, it occurs sporadically.
The man had a few fitful hours of sleep.
Interminable (pg. 99) An interminable dawn faded the stars out, and at last light, sad and grey, filtered into the shelter.
If something is interminable, it is exaggerated to be endless.
The wait in the dentist's office was interminable.
Contemptuously (pg. 101) Jack broke in, contemptuously.
In someone is contemptuous, they are scornful or showing disdain.
She was contemptuous of his idea for dinner.

Vocabulary & Text Structure
When is figurative language used and to what effect?
Foreshadowing is used on (95) "There was no light left save that of the stars." is setting the environment that Golding creates this one really mysterious and dark. It foreshadows a the dark (evil) times that lie ahead of the boys. The forgotten of light may also set the scene for danger to occur.
Author's Purpose
How reliable is the narrator? How do you know?
The narrator in Lord of the Flies is a third person point of view. The narrator moves back and forth knowing everything between different scenes and giving us access to the characters' inner thoughts or feelings.
Why did Golding titled chapter six "Beast from Air"?
A paratrooper, killed before or during his jump, lands on the island. The parachute fills with wind, causing the corpse to be pulled up the island. Now the boys are believing that the beast are coming from everywhere. As the chapter before this "Beast from Water" and now it's "Beast from Air". How Ironic!
Bristled (100) "The circle of boys before him bristled with hunting spears."
Definition - to become rigid with anger or irritation
Sentence - If someone starts to become bristled then cool him or her down.
Contemptuously (101) "Jack broke in, contemptuously."
Definition - showing or expressing contempt or disdain; scornful; disrespectful
Sentence - You are a contemptuously person that rude people even hate you!
Mutinously (108) "Mutinously, the boys fell silent or muttering."
Definition - disposed to, engaged in, or involving revolt against authority
Sentence - Someone mutinously came on to the field.

Inference
How do the parts build to a whole?
-At the beginning of the chapter, an explosion in air occurs, explosion that the twins saw, but what was that explosion?. For first time, both kids think they have seen the beast, but instead of in the water, now is in the air. This part is very important because is the beginning of a lot problems between Jack and Ralph. By now, the twins only talk to themselves about what the saw, they were the only people who were awake at that time at night, and the only thing they know is that there is a beast, well then, on page 100 when is time to talk about it in the assembly, they describe the beast really well, even if they didn't saw it, they both say that it had eyes, fur, claws, and that it was coming for them; this lie of the beast is going to bring serious problems in the future to the kids.

Key Details
Are there any shifts or patterns in the writing?
-On chapter six and also in almost all the book, we can see that the relationship between Ralph and Jack is not very good, Ralph prefers to act with intelligence and be sure of what he is doing, and Jack prefers to travel, discover new things, see what is around him but most of the time he does not know what he is doing. On page 101, a discussion between Jack and Ralph begins when is time to make a decision. First, the twins told the other kids that they saw the beast coming from the sky and now is on the mountain, what is coming next is if they stay where they are now and leave the things of the beast away, or go find the beast and kill it; here is where trouble begin, Ralph wants to stay, Jack wants to hunt. In this chapter we see that their ''friendship'' is dead, now Jack is not going to obey the rules and it's going to cause a trouble.

Golding called this chapter ''Beast from air'' because is the time when an aircraft is hit by enemy fire near the island, causing and explosion and making the pilot fall on the island. As it is dark, the only thing the twins can see is the big mass of fire and something falling from the air with some kind of parachute, and they thought that it was a beast.

-Smudge (pg 96): It is a dirty mark
There was a dark smudge on his forehead
-Embroil (pg 102): If you become embroiled in a fight, you become deeply involved in it
Piggy, finding himself uncomfortably embroiled, slid the conch to Ralph's knees and sat down
-Exasperation (pg 102): It is an act or instance of provocation
The old exasperation saved him and gave him the energy to attack

General Understanding
How did the auto organize the ideas?
  Inferences
Whose story/perspective is not represented?
In chapter 6 the author did not show what piggy and the littluns did while the others were looking for the beast. I think this was done because piggy is the smartest person on the island and him being there with Ralph and Jack would of took some fear away because he would probley say the beast is not real you have no reason to be scared. Which would not of been great since this chapter was based on everyone's fear of the beast, I do not believe the beast is real.
  In chapter six Golding uses the title " Beast from Air" because the person in the parachuted was seen by the twins which they thought was the monster. Thanks to the wind the person in the parachuted slides around the island which makes it seem more like a monster.
  Word study:
Scurrying (pg.97) back again. Eric watched the scurrying woodlice that were
If you are scurrying you are moving hurriedly with short quick steps.
Mice scurrying through the walls of my uncles house.
Menace (pg.99) full of claws, full of awful unknown and menace.
If you're a menace you're a person or thing that is likely to cause harm.
There has been many menaces throughout history.
Mutinously (pg.108) Mutinously, the boys fell silent or muttering.
If you are mutinously you are Unruly; insubordinate or constituting a mutiny.
Kim Jong Un is a very mutinously person.

Inference
How do the parts build to a whole?
In the beginning of chapter 6 they were talking about an explosion in the air and a dark figure falling from the sky. Most of the kids think it's the beast and the beast is coming from the air. The beast was describe with fur and sharp claws and the description of the beast builds up because, while looking for that dark figure from the sky. Simon out of nowhere got a huge scratch on his face and Ralph was wondering where he has gotten it from. That's why this whole thing about the dark figure in the sky and the beast all make sense now.
Whose story/perspective is not represented?
Of course Piggy and the other kids story aren't being represented because there's really nothing good to read about them. First of all you got the Jack and Jack is a character who kind plays like a villian in the book, while Ralph is someone who wants to help everybody and wants everybody to do something in order to get saved, but he's too bossy. But if the perspective was told from Piggy's view it wouldn't be so cool because we all know that Piggy is the smartest one there, but the most annoying one too. And the little kids are just a bunch of scary cats and don't do anything unless told.
Golding calls this chapter, Beast from Air, because when the twins heard and saw an explosion. They only thing they saw was a dark object falling from the sky to the island and of course the only thing they could think of is that the beast is coming here.
Theatrical (pg. 103) He let Jack lead the way; and Jack trod with theatrical yards away.
If someone is being theatrical, then he or she is being exaggerated and excessively dramatic.
Henry looked over his shoulder with theatrical caution.
Tottering (pg.107) Ralph stood now, one hand against an enormous red block, a block large as a mill wheel that had been split off and hung, tottering.
If something is being tottered, then it is being move in a feeble or unsteady way. A hunched figure tottering down the path.
Emphatic (pg.101) The reply was too emphatic for anyone to doubt them.
If someone or something is being emphatic, then he or she or it is expressing something forcibly and clearly.
The children were emphatic that they would want to repeat the experience again.

1) Vocabulary and text structure – what role do the individual paragraphs, sentences, phrases, or words play?
-on page 101, it says, “Piggy took off his damaged glasses and cleaned the remaining lens.” Throughout the book, piggy seems to do that with his glasses whenever he is nervous or irritated. At that time, they were talking about the beast. They mention that piggy has to stay all alone with the smaller boys while they go look for the beast. This seems to make him nervous. The author doesn’t necessarily imply that piggy only does this when he’s nervous, it’s just something that we have to figure out ourselves.
2) Why does the author name the chapter “Beast from Air?”
This chapter is called “Beast from Air” because at the beginning of the chapter, a dead pilot falls from a plane. We can predict that this is because of a war that was going on at that time. When the twins Eric and Sam see the dead pilot, they assume it’s the beast that everyone has been talking about. The dead pilot is a beast, and the beast came from the air.
1) Contemptuously (101) – “Jack broke in, contemptuously.”
- If someone does something contemptuously, they do it in a scornful way that shows disdain.
- She contemptuously handed the papers to her boss.
2) Constrainedly (103) – “He smiled constrainedly as though he had forgotten that simon had made a fool of himself.”
- If something is done constrainedly, it is forced, compelled, or obliged.
- She spit out her constrained confession.
3) Intently (102) – “The rest of the boys watched intently.”
- If something is done intently, it is done with earnest and eager attention.
- She listened to her couch talk about soccer intently.

*Text depending questions
-Vocabulary & Text Structure
When is figurative language used and to what effect?
In page 98, in this passage: " Far beneath them, the trees of the forest sighed, then roared." And in passage: " The leaves were roaring like the sea." Golding used the word "roar" in both passages to describe the movements of the woods and sea, to evoke and environment of fear to the situation, fear that the boys were feeling at the "beast" ,who according to what they believed, was near them. Because the word "roar" connotes brusqueness or aggressiveness, which are strongly associated with beasts.

What role do the paragraph and sentences play?
In pg. 98: "Ralph was dreaming. He had fallen asleep after what seemed hours of tossing and turning noisily among the dry leaves. Even the sounds of nightmare from the other shelters no longer reached him, for he was back to where he came from, feeding the ponies with sugar over the garden wall. Then someone was shaking his arm, telling him that it was time for tea."
Golding in this paragraph tells us a little about Ralph's life before dropping in the island. And he tells us how much does Ralph misses his life at home, how concentrated he was on his dream to the point of not being awake by the outside noises. Now we know Ralph a little bit more.

-Why did Golden titled the sixth chapter as "Beast from air"?
Because this chapter was about the boys looking for the beast in the island, which they described with wings, and it it has wings, possibly it flied.

Words I don't know:
*Oblong (pg. 99): " Piggy bumped into him and a twin grabbed him as he made for the oblong of paling stars." Friendly definition of _oblong: Something that has the shape of a long rectangle or an oval. Sentence with oblong: Most big stadiums are oblong.
*exasperation (pg. 102): "The old exasperation saved him and gave him the energy to attack." Friendly definition of _exasperation: When you are extremelly annoyed of irritated. Sentence with exasperation: He was full of exasperation and attempted to kick his little brother, because the little boy ruined his new play station.
*boulder: "...over the boulders and red stones, till it lay hudled among the shattered rocks of the mountain-top." Friendly definition of _boulder: A large rock. Sentence with boulder: The boulder fell from the mountain and smashed my camping tent; I was so frustrated because it took me 1 hour to get it done.

Chapter 6

Post by MNguyen23 on Thu Jun 01, 2017 3:44 pm

Vocabulary & Text Structure
When is figurative language used and to what effect?
In page 98, in this passage: " Far beneath them, the trees of the forest sighed, then roared." And in passage: " The leaves were roaring like the sea." Golding used the word "roar" in both passages to describe the movements of the woods and sea just like to compare how rapidly they moved. Also he could potentially be describing how they've made similar comparisons to the noise of the loud waves in the ocean during the windy days and nights.
Vocabulary and text structure – what role do the individual paragraphs, sentences, phrases, or words play?
-on page 101, it says, “Piggy took off his damaged glasses and cleaned the remaining lens.” Throughout the story piggy always takes off his glasses in which it shows us he is either scared worried or thinking about something constantly. To me this shows us one of the main characteristics about the character stating how theyre often doing something in a pattern.
The author names the chapter beast from the air because it clearly states the dead pilot that died and also shows how the boys Eric and Sam believed that he was the beast.
Vocabulary
Smudge: to have a dirty remark
Menance: to be a scary freak to somebody, also means claws
Emphatic: to express in a sincere way

Inferences
How do the parts build to a whole?
Chapter 6 is when Sam and Eric find the dead pilot and have mistaken him as the awful beast. I think this is the time when the part fits into each other. You see that the war is still going on around them because the pilot had been fighting the other side and got shot down like the children's plane. After hearing the big news from the twins, Ralph and Jack go out to hunt the beast down. Jack asks the question of whether Ralph is scared or not in front of everyone. Ralph shows his vulnerability to everyone saying that yes he is scared. Which makes the followers think differently of the two boys. The leadership starts to shift in the other direction. I think since Jack finally has all the attention of the boys he uses it to his advantage.
Golding named this chapter "Beast from Air" because they went to find the beast that supposedly is on the island and Samneric saw it. They have looked for a beast on the mountain top and they have talked about a beast being in the sea, but no one has mentioned anything about beasts in the sky. I think that means that not only are the children enemies of themselves, but that there is even bigger enemies out there that'll not even hesitate to kill the children. So maybe they need to stop paying attention to the beasts or creatures that surround them, and they should probably focus on things that are much greater than them. The beast they speak of now is a dead pilot from the war and kind of just dropped out of the sky hence the beast from air.
Diffidently(103)-"Diffidently, Simon allowed his pace to slacken until he was walking side by side with Ralph."
describes someone who is shy and lacking in self-confidence.
Somberly(107)-"Somberly he watched the mountain."
which means "serious" or "dark and dull in color."
Tremulously(99)- "The twins, holding tremulously to each other, dared the few yards to the next shelter."
characterized by or affected with trembling or tremors.

Vocabulary and Text Structure:
What may the author chosen one word over another?
On page 103 Golding use the noun Samneric as one name that recalls to two different -if we can call them different- persons, but, Why not Sam and Eric or Sam 'n Eric as he had previously called them. Golding recall them to be nearly the same person; doing everything together, completing their sentences, nearly to be one person Golding calls them as only one for the first time.

Author's Purpose:
What is the author's purpose of writing - entertain, inform, persuade? How do you know?
The author want to entertain the reader and lead them to inform about the real world were the disorganization begins breaking not-to-much-important-rules as Jack did from the beginning 'taking easy' the conch that means law and harmony, to now question it as law.

Golding might named the sixth chapter as "The Beast from Air" because of the need of a beast on the book that the kids made because they are frightened of nothing, they don't have something to be scared of, they must find an excuse to it; but thinking closely to who is the beast and the antecedents of what Simon and Piggy said about humans we can realize that the only beast n the Earth are humans, the "beast" on the chapter was an adult, the representation of whom made the war: real beasts.

Word Study:
1. Radiated (page 97): "Warmth radiated now, and beat pleasantly on them."
to extend, spread, or move like rays or radii from a center.
2. Relentless (page 101): '“Let’s be moving,” said Jack relentlessly, “we’re wasting time.”'
that does not relent; unyieldingly severe, strict, or harsh; unrelenting:
3. Mutinous (page 108): "Mutinously, the boys fell silent or muttering."
disposed to, engaged in, or involving revolt against authority.

\General Understanding
How did the author organize the ideas? He named chapter 5 beast from water and chapter 6 is named beast from air and that shows that they have not much time until they find another "beast", which gets them even more scared.

\Vocabulary & Text Structure
How does organization contribute to meaning?

\This chapter is named Beast from Air because we first see and hear of the "Beast of Air" from Sam and Eric after they are done watching the fire.

\Oblong (99): "Piggy bumped into him and a twin grabbed him as he made for the oblong of paling stars." Something that has the shape of a long rectangle or an oval.

1.
Key Details
Are there any shifts or patterns in the writing?
On page 101, Ralph and Jack have an argument on what decision to make to look for the "beast". This idea came from the twins who told everyone else that they saw the beast coming from the sky. Ralph and Jacks argument was whether they should stay where they are and not confront the beast or to go find the beast and kill it. Ralph being the smarter one of the two wants to stay. Jack being the more savage of the two wants to go kill the beast. At this point, we see Jack turn into even more of a savage when he decides that he is not going to obey the rules.
Inferences
Whose story/perspective is not represented?
I think that Piggy's perspective is not represented a lot in this chapter. The reason why I think his side isn't represented is because Golding doesn't want the story turning into Piggy persuading the boys that there is no beast at all. This would cause the boys to be more confident than afraid and they would probably get more done. This would also ruin the story because the beast is really the main antagonist so far, and without an antagonist, a story would not be complete.
2.
In chapter 6, Golding uses the title, Beast from Air, because in this chapter there is a dead pilot who parachuted out of his plane. Sam and Eric saw him and made the claim that it was the beast. This gives the older boys a chance to go explore the island to try and find the beast. This makes the doubters believe that there is a dangerous creature on the island with them. This makes everyone nervous and now the kids focus is on the beast instead of getting home.
3.
Exasperation page 102, If you exasperated then you are extremely annoyed or irritated."The old exasperation saved him and gave him the energy to attack." His exasperation made him fight the bully.

Contemptuously page 101, If someone is being contemptuous, they are showing disrespect.
"Jack broke in, contemptuously." The boy contemptuously talked back to his mother

Smudge page 96, If something has a smudge then it has a dirty mark somewhere.
"There was a dark smudge on his forehead." There was a big smudge on the vase.

-How did the author organize the ideas?
---Little does Ralph know that his wish for "something grown-up" is granted that same night, though not exactly in the way he intended. As the boys sleep that night a battle between two planes wages on in the air above the island--one of the planes is destroyed. Drifting down to the island after the explosion is the lifeless body of its pilot, bound tightly in a pilot suit and parachute cables. The chute carries the body to rest at the summit of the mountain where their signal fire burns.

-How does organization contribute to meaning?

Key Words:
1. Leviathan "Then, the sleeping leviathan breathed out..." (105): something very large; giant sea creature in the Bible
2. Clamor "The clamor broke out" (108): a loud outcry; great expression of discontent
2. Tremulously "The twins, holding tremulously to each other..." (99): shaking or quivering slightly.

Inference

How do the parts build to a whole?

In the beginning of the chapter there was an explosion in the sky and a figure that dropped in on the mountain. The twins are the only ones who see it, and they describe it to everyone as something that could fly. The image they give the beast is that is furry, has sharp claws, and big teeth. These false descriptions of the beast will work together with everything else to spread the common fear of the beast. I think the idea of a beast is the thing that tore their community apart, because everyone isn’t sure if there is a beast or not.

Author's Purpose

What is the author's purpose of writing - entertain, inform, persuade? How do you know?

I think the authors purpose to write this is to inform you on what happens when you live without rules or break the rules you live by. I think he shows through the beast that sometimes we scare ourselves or others with our imagination. He also shows how a society looks like when rules are forgotten.

I think Golding uses the title beast from the air because that is where the beast is believed to come from. The last chapter was named beast from the sea and this chapter is named beast from the air I think this shows how the beast’s image is constantly changing because no one has really seen it. I think through those chapter titles he was communicating to us that there is no physical beast, that it’s all in their head.

Word study

Contemptuously (pg.101) “Jack broke in, contemptuously.”   

Def: The feeling that a person or a thing is beneath consideration, worthless, or deserving scorn.

Sen: She was intolerant and contemptuous of the majority of the human race.

Mutinously (pg.108) “Mutinously, the boys fell silent or muttering.”

Def: Refusing to obey the orders of a person in authority.

Sen: The boy looked mutinous, but he obeyed

Exasperation (pg. 102) "The old exasperation saved him and gave him the energy to attack."

Def: A feeling of intense irritation or annoyance.

Sen: I rolled my eyes in exasperation to my friends question

Chapter six response

Post by Broseph:D on Sun Jun 04, 2017 3:47 pm

Questions:
Are there in shifts or patterns in the writing?
The only noticeable shift that comes along from chapter 5 to chapter 6 is how the book views the beast. Form being a never before seen creature to being a hanging corpse. The only beast that is described throughout the book that includes what's in the environment is the unknown.
Does the meaning of words go beyond the denotes meaning?
If the words used in important build ups of a sertain part of the book then it would be a yes. Golding uses phrases that would get a clear image inside of the readers head. One example would be when the boys find another version of what they thought was the beast.

The chapter is called "Beast from Air" is because this is another representation of the beast. Back when the group of the boys agreed on going to the dark evil area of the island, they found a hanging body in which they had represented as another beast.

Word study:
Sensibly: "But they could never message to do things sensibly if that meant acting independently.."(pg.96) In a way that shows wisdom or prudence. Sentence: The committee sensibly decided not to go ahead with the meeting.
Contour: "..he resettled the scattered rocks from their flat shadows into daylight contours."(pg.97) The shape or form of something. Sentence: She traced the contours of his face with her finger.
Inconstant: "..while the flailing fire sent smoke and sparks and waves of inconstant light over the top of the mountain."(pg.98) frequently changing. Sentence: Their exact dimensions aren't easily measured since they are inconstant.

Vocab Words
substantial: of considerable importance, size, or worth
emphatic: expressing something forcibly and clearly
bristled: stand upright and away from the skin

Why is the chapter called" Beast from Air"? Again, this chapter's title talks about what will be happening. This chapter has a dead pilot fall onto the island and the boys spend all day looking for it. They think it is this beast that has been such a hype for the past few chapters. Jack says that there is one place he hasn't been and goes to investigate along with Ralph and a few others.

Why do authors begin and end when they do?
The author usually informs us of something that we no not of. he informs us what is about to happen and allows us to sit back and watch it develop. He ends and stars when there is something to explain and when he has exhausted that explanation.

Where does the text leave matters uncertain or unstated?
I'm unclear why the boys are spending so much time on this beast. All the biguns were criticizing it and now they are spending an entire day hunting it down. I didn't know what changed everyone's mind about the existence of this thing.

how do the parts build to a hole?
I thing because they finally figure why they are on the island such as because they figure out there is a war going on.

Are there any shifts?
yes because they finally figure out what the beast is and everything starts to fall in to place. so changing from scared of the beast know the beast is a dead pilot.

he called it that because the beast actually falling from the sky was a pilot who had a parachute

Clamor "The clamor broke out" (108): a loud outcry; great expression of discontent
exasperation (102): "The old exasperation saved him and gave him the energy to attack." When you are extremely annoyed of irritated.
Fitful (pg. 96) Here the breeze was fitful and allowed the strings of the parachute to tangle and festoon...
If something is fitful, it is not regular, it occurs sporadically

Inference
How do the parts build to a whole?
when the boys happen to claim to see the beast they describe it as furry with sharp claws and big teeth. "teeth..claws..."100 Because of all the suspense leading to believe that there is actually a beast the kids become more frightened and wild. Jack becomes more dangerous and Ralph still believes that there isn't a beast. This is mostly tearing their community apart because some believe that there is actually a beast and are afraid to help with anything else besides surviving.
Key Details
Are there any shifts or patterns in the writing?
On page 100 ralph and jack are arguing about weather or not they should look the "beast" or not. This started because the twin saw an explosion in the sky and did know what it was. There are two kinds of people in this book Ralph who wants to leave the beast alone because he was there before them or Jack who wants to go hun tit and kill it. Jack starts to wonder off and not follow the rules anymore.
I thin this chapter is called "Beast From Air" because there is commotion in the hair and the kids do not know what it is the only ting they think is that it is the beast.
Vocab:
Contour: "..he resettled the scattered rocks from their flat shadows into daylight contours."(pg.97) The shape or form of something. She traced the contours of his face with her finger.

Tremulously "The twins, holding tremulously to each other..." (99): shaking or quivering slightly. She was tremulously walking to the lake.

Oblong (pg. 99): " Piggy bumped into him and a twin grabbed him as he made for the oblong of paling stars." Something that has the shape of a long rectangle or an oval. Bowling allies are oblong.
