This chapter discusses fold. As words touch the skin, bodies too enfold language. Fold is a figure of desire. Language and flesh are mutually implicated, folded up together as well. The chapter discusses that both may be theorized in the figure of the fold. In looking at body and language in terms of the fold, four attributes emerge as being of particular importance: exploration, articulation, enwrapping, and repetition.
Keywords: fold; touch; body and language; exploration; articulation; enwrapping; repetition
