This book focuses on exploring the significance of thought in movement through Amanda Baggs’s video titled In My Language, which demonstrates how a woman moves her body in response to spoken words. This interrelationship between movement and sound demonstrates a way to create a complex environment that is invigorated through the interaction of objects, sounds, and gestures. Through this example, the book demonstrates how movements can be manipulated and refined through spoken words and communication based on language. Investigations throughout this portion of the book also reveal that relational encounters make linguistic space more complex compared with spoken words.

Keywords:   video, movement, sound, spoken words, linguistic space
