Delire is the incarnation of the dangerous side of language. Frontiers play the part of a differential element in the paradox of language: there are linguistic values, which distinguish correct or 'normal' language from delire, and yet the rejected elements play a part in the constitution of linguistic values. Gilles Deleuze's theory of sense explores the structural relationships between soma and psyche, sounds and words, words and things; it seeks to account for the delire which lies at the heart of every utterance, even the most rational and communicative. This theory of sense involves a theory of language: of its origins, of its relationship to the human body, and of its fragility and dissolution into delire. Louis Wolfson's brand of delire is characterized, among other things, by an obsession with foodstuffs and words, and by a general process of translation whereby a series of English words is linked to a series of words in other languages.
