These are the only words that I know in the English language. I haven’t been taught anything outside of the selection that you see here, in this compact, bulging little paragraph. My teacher assures me that these seventy seven words are all I should ever require. You might well think that she is misguided in her opinion and you certainly wouldn’t be alone if you held that viewpoint. I’m not sure if I should believe her. To be blunt, she does have some rather peculiar ideas, however, I don’t feel particularly confined by this narrow vocabulary, in fact I feel wonderfully agile, incredibly free.
