Language is a physical thing. You use it every day, mouthing out the words, pushing air up through the body, to the lips, to say something. And what you hear someone say to you, has an effect you can feel. The way a phrase gets said might leave you ecstatic, concerned, confused, or perhaps depressed for the rest of the day. You might end up repeating it to yourself, running over it again and again in your head.

Language has impact.
It's a physical thing.
