For many people in the West, the very idea of silence is strange and unattractive,
if not actually forbidding. You only have to think of the way we commonly
describe it to realise that it is not something most of us look forward to. We talk
about an uncomfortable silence, an awkward silence, an embarrassing silence,
an oppressive silence, a stony silence, an ominous silence, a silence you can cut
with a knife, a deathly silence. That doesn't include all those people who regard
the absence ...

There was a stony silence, broken only by background gunfire. 'I'm going to keep

Hauptmann Beckendorf, look after the Captain, give him the same rations as you
are entitled to, or whatever remains of them. But if he tries to go back over the line
to his friends, shoot him.' With that he made clear that the audience was over.

For example, compare the following: “His speech was met by silence” and “His
speech was met by a stony silence.” The use of the idea (occult virtue) of “stone”
conjures up (magick) a whole chain of correspondences: cold, still, implacable,
impenetrable, gravelike, inert, dead, dry, hard, heavy, and so on. Politicians often
use rhythms of three to hypnotize (if they're “bad”) or “mesmerize” (if they're “good
”) their followers—if, that is, the followers have a will to follow. Grasp of English

Conclusion There was an eager crowd below the balcony at dawn; habits and
patterns on day five. Silence, a stony silence. This was not meant to be cruel, the
two residents in flesh were asleep, as most humans are at dawn. The deep
rumbling later at noon was in stereo this magical day, wall blocks on opposite
sides were on the move; two each, four blocks in all, swinging outwards,
expanding the gateway— welcoming. Quickly the stony silence returned; but the
invitations had been ...

... pressure and began to enjoy smoking, but, having accepted so many
cigarettes from friends, I decided it was time to buy some and pass them around.
That was the beginning and I must say that I regret to say that I have smoked ever
since. Once, when I was in the coffee bar smoking a cigarettes, my mother
walked by. I do not know if she was shocked orjust angry and I was afraid to go
home. Well, eventually I had to and I was greeted by a stony silence for a week
and then I was told ...

Silence The most intriguing among all the non-verbal symbols is undoubtedly
silence. What makes it special is its ability to project contradictory meanings. It
can stand for yes, no, maybe, and all of them together. Silence is enigmatic. It is
the best example of the inscrutability of human communication. It requires higher
than usual communicative competence to read silence reliably. Silence can be a
powerful weapon. If you call someone names and he responds with a stony
silence, it is ...

Silence, thus, creates a “tension” that can interrupt and, over time when
kairotically employed, may work to dismantle ways of talking that normalize sexist
thinking and practices. For example, one researcher responded to a colleague's
comment about her “post-baby figure” by maintaining eye contact and a stony
silence. As one respondent notes, “Sometimes a silently raised eyebrow is
surprisingly effective.” For silence to be an effective tactical interruption others
must notice it; that is, ...

Silence is enigmatic. It is the best example of the inscrutability of human
communication. It requires higher than usual communicative competence to
make the right inference from silence. As Henry David Thoreau said, “In human
intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words,
but when silence is not understood.” Silence can be a powerful weapon. If you
call someone names and he responds with a stony silence, it is difficult for you to
go on. Silence is ...
