Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

This unnamed Italian immigrant in The Sound and the Fury does not speak English. When Quentin knocks at her door hoping to find the home of the little girl who has been accompanying him since he left the bakery, the woman seems to understand his question, but her answer is undecipherable: "'Si, si,' she said, holding back, showing me whatever it was" (132).
