Language is used everyday in lives. We use it to communicate with each other to show how we feel or think. Comfort can drift away from us if we do not have the ability to communicate with others. Barriers can present themselves when trying to communicate inhibiting language. In the short story Out of All Them Bright Stars by Nancy Kress, she puts an alien in a normal dinner and everyone is uncomfortable with his presence there except his waitress.
After bringing scared of him they finally talk to him , but they couldn't understand what the angel was saying so they called a neighbor woman who knows everything to see him.

The Cold Birds The imagery of the short story “The Birds,” by Daphne du Maurier, illustrates that these birds are trying to get inside of Nat’s house for the purpose of terrorizing them. “Various incidents were recounted, the suspected reason of cold and hunger started again, and warnings to the householders repeated” (61). This quote shows that the birds are somehow trying to give Nat and his family warnings by tapping on his windows before the attacks and after the repeated attacks. “The tapping went on and on and a new rasping note struck Nat’s ear as though a sharper beak than any hitherto had come back to take over from its fellows” (75). This quote shows that the birds are constantly giving Nat and his family warnings and the birds
We also would see who could climb the gargantuan fence first. I wasn’t much of a climber so me and my other friend watched. We weren’t that bright either. During a baseball game someone got stung by a hornet and we put a bounty on the bees. We took flyswatters and whacked at them and there nests.
Some of the birds have to be persuaded to eat in some of the places where the burial happens as they are a few ‘meals’ a day. To ensure that the birds eat them, a ritual dance will take place. When the vultures do not eat or if they even leave any small part of the body uneaten, it is a bad sign. It’s a different situation altogether for sky burial locations where there are fewer bodies as the vultures need to be kept off with sticks during the early preparations. The full process of sky burial is costly.
The birds had been more restless than ever this fall of the year, the agitation more marked because the days were still. (52) This quote shows that there is something strange happening with the birds and hints towards something more later in the story. In one scene, Nat askes Mr. Trigg if he has boarded up his windows yet. He replied, saying that the birds were a bunch of nonsense and that he had nothing to worry about. (66) This scene hints towards Mr. Trigg’s death because he did not take the proper precautions.
A finch is also a type of bird which is symbolic of their family. Like the bird, the Finch family can be vulnerable. In Maycomb there’s lots of racism. When Atticus tries to defend Tom Robinson; a black, people begin speaking bad about the Finch’s. When they have their Christmas with the rest of their family, Scout’s cousin, Francis calls Atticus a “nigger-lover” repeatedly (83-84).
For example, “darkness” implies mystery, obscurity and the presence of evil, while “fearing” and “[d]oubting” suggest insecurity and a lack of confidence. The persona eventually returns inside, but he soon hears more tapping. Determined to discover where the sound is coming from, the speaker opens the shutters and inadvertently lets in a raven. Fascinated by its “stately” appearance, he starts a conversation with the “ebony bird,” and is shocked to discover the raven can speak. Although the raven only says “[n]evermore,” the speaker continues talking to it, asking it if he’ll ever see his beloved Lenore again in the afterlife.
The two wives then uncover it all, her husband didn't like her singing to the bird so he strangled. In return she strangled him. They decide not to show their husbands because that would convict her right away. Since the husbands could not find any evidence to convict her she probably wouldn't be
