C. Deletions of words from the original may be made, but words may be added only for transitional purposes.

D. The interper must provide an introduction that adequately identifies the title and author of the source(s).

E. During the introduction and throughout the performance, the interper may use vocal, facial, and bodily expression as long as he/she does not detract from the meaning of the material.

G. No props or costumes are allowed. A prop is any item that is handled or carried by the competitor. For example: touching and using a real watch during the presentation would be considered using the watch as a prop; however, a competitor who touches his/her hair is not using a prop.
