Simply so, is Nell intelligent?
To everyone's shock, Nell presents herself, with the help of Jerry's translating, as an intelligent, intuitive person. But most importantly, she understands the heart of life–what scares us, what moves us. Nell tells us that she knows small things–her world is small.
Likewise, how does Nell learn? Nobody has ever met Nell. After her mother's death, she's discovered by the local doctor Jerome. He's fascinated by her, since she speaks a mangled language, developed by her sister and herself growing up, "twin speak" if you will. Due to her isolation Nell never learned proper English, only a mangled form.
In this manner, what does Chickabee mean in Nell?
Biddy can also refer to a newly-hatched chick (source), so chickabee might be translated as an endearment such as "dear baby chick", "dear one", or "my beloved."A third possibility is that it was used by her mother to describe Nell and May as being as alike as two chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans).
Did the movie Nell win any awards?
