One of the designs of the story is the bringing out of prominent grammatical features, such as different classes of verbs, force and value of prepositions, use of adjectives, presentation of lucid syntactical adjustments, and enough of idiomatic expressions to pave the way into a more natural flow of the language, and thereby wean gradually from a too English literalness.

(struggled) sous l'opération. Dans sa rage il brisait[19] les verres, les tasses, les assiettes, et même il enfonçait les fenêtres. A table il mangeait comme un petit pourceau, et il tenait[20] de la main gauche cuillère ou fourchette, et quelquefois même il mangeait avec les doigts, et quand il avait fini, il les léchait[21] et puis les essuyait à ses habits. Naturellement, il ne pouvait être autrement. Tant qu'il fut malade, ses parents et sa nourrice firent leur possible pour ne pas le contrarier (in order not to cross him).
