Certain manuscripts of Maurice Merleau-Ponty form the center of the investigation pursued in this essay, an investigation within the domain of phenomenological interrogation of language. Language contains the reference to something different from the self. Phenomenology shows that it is being itself that underlies and structures language utterances, which incorporate this structure, and it is precisely because there is structural identity that language can refer to experience. At this level language works by "family resemblances", "overlapping", and "digressions". Example is the language of art, as a chance to lead to expression of the silence of the things themselves.
