In this review, I briefly explain some of the key concepts of the book in order to offer a panoramic view of  the theory of linguistic bodies. Following the book's structure, I first describe the authors’ notion of body,  then refer to their notion ofdialectics, after that, I expose the steps of the model and, finally, get to their conception of languaging.
