Abstract

This is the verbatim transcript of the fifth hour of the tape-recorded psychoanalysis of a 28-year old married woman. The transcript was carefully prepared and punctuated to reflect the disfluencies and fragmentation that are characteristic of much of spoken language. In this session the analysand spoke 5244 words and the analyst 247. Substitute proper names have been used, e.g. David is the woman’s husband.
