The Language of Words

Forgotten book

Gesture, sound, attitude and audience feedback are all absolutely critical for telling an audience about a story, and for making the story entertaining. However, no story is complete without words.

Words, coupled with the other four languages of storytelling, complete the whole picture. Words also allow the audience not only to be entertained, but to find shared meaning in the common words and emotions.
