Mark Edward Cote writes:

if we set language as a baseline then we overlook how the body
and affect help constitute the actualization of our environment.

Why does that follow? If one has in mind spoken language, then voice is implicated. If one has in mind written language, then sight
is implicated. Comprehension of a statement intended to shock--"she looked around furtively as she bit out the baby's beating heart"--
would require an affective reaction (another example, the test for clones in Blade Runner).
