The author examines the fundamental importance of language in his work as an analyst. The article uses clinical flashes and examples from his daily practice which help the reader understand how he uses words with his patients. He demonstrates in particular how in psychosomatic disturbances the body becomes language and how the individual expresses everything he cannot put into words with his body. Emotional experiences, if not elaborated, are evacuated into the body, and the fundamental aim of analysis is to help the patient realize the link between thoughts and feelings. The "sickness" that is treated in analysis is fundamentally a sickness of language. The treatment must therefore be a treatment of the words
Keywords: Emotions, body, words, language, symptoms, psychosomatic
