Focusing on application of the narrative function of terror (Radcliffe 1826) which is common in Gothic literature and other forms of verbal art that appeal to our human fear of the unknown, the analysis addresses instances of language use in song that deliberately do not observe the maxim of quantity (Grice 1975) in referring to the monstrous antagonist in the narrative told in the song. In keeping with the purpose of cognitive poetics, the analysis also proposes a number of cognitive capacities that the reader is likely to draw on when construing the vague descriptions of the monster in 'Night Crawler'.",
