What can we say of this ? Now this question will be answered in the wrong way if we forget the qualifications , forced upon us by the adoption of Wittgenstein 's notion of language-games , which permeate the implications of such talk about dumb animals . Frey would solve the problem in the following manner : Recognition (t) involves certain beliefs ; specifically , that the object has been previously encountered , that we are not imagining it , and so on . But only a self-conscious user of language could be capable of this . So animals are incapable of recognition . Now Regan 's response to this , exemplified in the imbecile 's fear , would be to insist that since ordinary usage almost seems to demand that we describe that unfortunate as recognising a snake , and because this is only possible of someone who holds the necessary beliefs , then he must hold them somehow and somewhere . This , as we saw , will not do .

Now(a) let's imagine you are the noisy neighbour : you could turn the TV or radio volume down ; you could stop slamming doors ; and you could stop the children chasing around the house and shouting to each other : but that 's asking you to change your life-style completely , and it 's not really feasible . You could be expected to do some of these things , but not all . Since we 're imagining that you 're a co-operative noisy neighbour , here are some of the steps you can take to reduce the noise nuisance . Apart from teaching the children to be quiet , and to wear slippers and not heavy shoes in the house , you could lay carpet and thick underlay over the floors and up the stairs . this will reduce the impact noise , and also help absorb airborne loud conversation . Thick curtains and other soft furnishings will also help absorb airborne noises .

By then , anything could happen . At least it gave him time to try and talk some sense into her . But deep down he had the feeling that sooner or later , he would have to face the big wave with her . Then she jumped up . ` Come on , ' she chirped , ` give me a lift home on the famous motorbike . I must see how Mummy is . ' She chatted into his ear all the way back to the big house(a) , but he stayed silent . He was imagining himself sitting in a tiny Kayak in the middle of the Severn looking up at a wall of water , anything from six to nine feet high depending on conditions , bearing down on him at twelve miles an hour and making more noise than a fast approaching train . ` I must be bloody mad , ' he groaned to himself . He dropped Julie off at the house , then continued on to Stone to change the accumulator . Selwyn would be ready by the time he returned .

' he whispered . ` They 're expecting us to return .(t) They 're imagining we 're making love -- ' ` Well , they could n't be more wrong , could they ? ' she said coldly . ` Goodbye , Lucenzo .
