The difference in diction is comprised by an emotional appeal in Gatsby's voice we hadn't heard until this point in the novel. He uses words like "grotesque" and "deserved." We can see a difference in his demeanor, "His house had never seemed so enormous...and rooms were musty, as though they hadn't been aired for many days." He speaks of Daisy, and you can hear the love, but it's hopeless now, and you can hear that too. To understand their relationship is to realize that there's never really been a relationship....... it's all been a dream.
