Correct dialog tags and punctuation for an unusual character. An African Grey parrot. Name Cecil, very talkative. Has large vocabulary and uses it as this variety of bird is so compelled. Of course the human character reaction is: sometimes annoyed, sometimes laughing; he is ignored, or he is simply put in another room. The question is: is there a correct way to punctuate his dialog. I feel a little ridiculous writing: "bla bla bla, Cecil said scowling. Any suggestions?
