Theaetetus
And very suddenly, too.

Socrates
Yes, for we are not watching it carefully. Perhaps we ought to have said that the syllable is not the letters, but a single concept that has arisen from them, having a single form of its own, different from the letters.

Theaetetus

Socrates
Let us look into that; we must not give up in such unmanly fashion a great and impressive theory.

Theaetetus
No, we must not.
