What's with the language in Spartacus?
posted by devnull to Writing & Language (1 answer total)
In the TV series Spartacus, the characters normally miss out articles, plurals and other words. Also the word order is sometimes funky.
- Funky word order example: A sword in his chest would be a blow less felt.
- Missing word: Spartacus tells a becomes lighter in time.
- Missing word: You carry a shield as well as sword.
- Missing word: ..bleated from tongue with sword to neck?
But sometimes they don't speak like this. Is there some lingual logic behind this?
