    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

    Even if it were possible, a return to things as they were does not feel like much of a choice. More like surrender, like succumbing to a tide that would sweep him back into that numbing sea of alienation in which he has been drowning these last weeks. But if not that, then what?

    Nicolò says nothing, just watches Yusuf. Nicolò’s eyes look like a sea too, Yusuf thinks, but not a sea for drowning.

    -

    Yusuf and Nicolò die, and kill each other, and nothing changes. Until it does.

    Joe and Nicky are supposed to be on vacation, healing from the aftermath of Merrick and the lab. But the work they do doesn't take a break, and sometimes they can't, either.
