Is the unspoken unuttered, unstated, unexpressed, undeclared, unvoiced and silenced? Or is it allusive, assumed, insinuated, suggested, implicit and latent?

Rui Vilela

Departing from an unfinished sentence, I will describe what happens at the moment of aposiopesis – becoming silent – and how from within it all possible dialogues may emerge. While being constituted, the voices are still encapsulated within the writer’s own voice. At this point, they are still interchangeable between the “bodies-to be”. Because the voices are not yet assigned to bodies, the emerging dialogues need not follow a reasonable stream. When written down, uttered, the voices will gradually become distinct but until then it remains unknown whether the words will ever be said.
