Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between memory, language appropriation, and the feeling in George Eliot's novel The Mill on the Floss and Charles Dickens's David Copperfield. Through analyzing paraphrases and misquotations from myriad characters in each novel, this paper encourages a linguistic community of memory and feeling.
