squat & gibber

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf: The Voyage Out

At length the tunnel opened and became a vault; she found herself trapped in it, bricks meeting her wherever she turned, alone with a little deformed man who squatted on the floor gibbering, with long nails.

Definitions:

squat:
1. to sit on your heels with your knees bent up close to your body;
...

gibber:
to speak quickly in a way that is difficult to understand, often because of fear.
