Yet this devotional interpretation is complicated by the negativity of some lexemes and tropes, such as the adverb "scarcely" (which deprives the holy communion of concrete nutritious powers), the image of crucifixion involving the speaker and the reader alike ("We are so grafted on His wood"), and the cannibalistic (or, rather, self-cannibalistic) implications of the consubstantive "our Savior's and our blood." Particularly disquieting is the juxtaposition of the victim's and the drinker's blood at line 32, which, figuratively and phonically
connected with the anomalous "food" (1.
In the presence of dangerous bystanders, Bugis immigrants must phonically
minimize, mask or flatten certain features of their speech so that the signs that they exhibit are not sonically registered as "too Bugis" and thus indicative of "illegal" presences.(29) In this crucial sense, signs of illegality are detected with reference to intensity gradients.

This picture certainly does not argue for the phonic equivalence of all possible /u:/ and /o:/ spellings in the Chester Shepherds play; rather it indicates that in Huntington MS 2, the graphemes <u, ow, ou, oo, o> represented sounds that were phonically
close enough to sustain rhyme schemes, could have been grouped together by the ear, and may even have in certain contexts been allophonic in the Cheshire dialect.
The persistent "lull" of the "waves" is replicated syntactically by the repeating Again, which phonically
resonates with the undulating "Aegean," the "native sea" that no longer belongs to its "natives." The "frown" announces the sad truth that the "smile" of these natural beauties (both sun and sea) represents an elusive freedom that "sinks" and cannot be made "thine," much like the pleasures that cannot yet be guaranteed by the contested "isle" with which it rhymes twice (Corsair, 3:1, 18, 7-8).
