    Excerpt:

    The birth of language is the dawn of humanity. We are born into a world of sounds. The sound changes to language, the language to communication. If psychotherapy is defined as the intent of changing behavior, feelings, and emotions by psychological means, language is the core of that transference. The security of the verbal arena is not without complexity. Words have both an intellectual and emotional meaning: Few words are devoid of any emotional meaning. The individual’s history of the acquisition of a word gives the matrix for the emotional response that is evoked by its use. Words may actually be repressed as concepts disassociated from their meaning. (21 pp.)
