The present article investigates some consequences from the rapport of the creative and the sedimented language in Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s works. Itaims at analyzing the different positions adopted by the philosopher on that rapport by considering the image of a boiling liquid as the guide for such analysis. The heuristic power of this image will help, on one side,to comprehend the different standpoints used to interpret the phenomenon of language; on the other side, it will serve as an index to follow the rectification and the radicalization of his philosophy.
