{Holly is holding a book sideways. Delkin is nearby.}
Delkin: O, she wreath'd in holly! I inquire upon what literature you dangle so finely afront those knowing hazel eyes.
Holly: I'm pleased you've asked, noble kin of Derek. What I've grasped in mine claws is a tome on the spoken word. It enlightens that the most minimal utterances of meaning we produce might precede language itself; something never inherited from other minds but intrinsic to the very nature of mind.
{Zoom out.}
Delkin: Huh?
Holly: Mm-hm.
Delkin: Oh.

The author writes:

Eh? Eh?


(Delkin: by surface analysis, "Del" (diminutive of Derek) + "kin". You're welcome.)
