This paper is a theoretical proposal on the expressive dimension of inner speech. The phenomenon of interest emphasizes Karl Bühler’s proposal regarding the expressiveness of language; Heinz Werner’s studies about a physiognomic-organismic dimension of human language; and the theoretical and empirical approach of Lev Vygotsky on the inner language phenomenon in human experience. I conclude that in some passages of Vygotsky’s work are the keys to an understanding of the expressive inner speech, specifically the influence of affective-volitional sphere of consciousness in the development of thought and language. Finally, an integration of Vygotsky’s monological conception of inner language, the Wernerian’s physiognomic-organismic notion of language and Bühlerian’s expressive dimension of human language, for an inclusive understanding of the expressiveness of the inner language, is developed.
