The ceremony was highly formalized, with certain animals killed at specific times and places, and accompanied by music and dance. The day of the funeral was determined by divination. Then, on the fourth day of a seven-day fast, stalks were cast as lots to select the shi (“descendant”), usually a grandson or daughter-in-law of the deceased, who would communicate with the ancestors and perform the burial rites. On this day, the spirit of the deceased was invited, in the person of the shi, to “take some refreshment,” presumably a drink of a fermented beverage.

This facility could have been essential in coordinating the facial and tongue movements necessary for speech.
