Thank you very much. Could you check these sentences about the interior monologue.

1) The American psychologist William James coined the phrase “stream of consciousness” to define the continuous flow of thoughts and sensations that characterize the human mind.
2) The stream of consciousness is often confused with interior monologue although they are quite different.
In fact the former describes the psychic phenomenon, while the latter is its verbal expression.
3) The interior monologue has the following features. First, it is immediate since it lacks the conventional syntax and it is free from introductory expressions. It is characterized by two levels of narration: one external to the character’s mind and one internal.
4) It doesn’t follow a chronological or a logical formal order of events and time is perceived as subjective. The rules of punctuation are not respected.
5) In the indirect interior monologue the narrator never lets the character’s flow of thoughts without control, and maintains logical and grammatical organization. The character stays fixed in space while his/her consciousness moves freely in time
