early Bakhtin - word as concept and image

"The expression of a performed act from within and the expression of once-occurent Being-as-event in which that act is performed require the entire fullness of the word: its content/sense aspect (the word as concept) as well as its palpable-expressive aspect (the word as image) and its emotional-volitional aspect (the intonation of the word) in their unity. And in all these moments the full unitary word can be answerably valid, i.e., can be the truth [...] rather than something subjectively fortuitous."
