A body, three registers: RSI. Questions about the psychosomatic phenomenon. In psychoanalysis the body has a very precise constitution that differs from the medical concept. In psychoanalysis the body is affected by language. The incorporation of the language promotes a transcription of the body without leaving something behind. In the psychosomatic phenomenon, object a does not follow the destiny of a lost object, and remains incarcerated. The analytic operation allows a relocation of jouissance, restoring to the body the emptiness that fills it when leading jouissance towards the borders of the body under the effect of signifier modulation, through speech.
Keywords : Speech; body; jouissance; objet petit a; psychosomatic phenomenon.
