Most people think that the origin of language formation lies in the sensory experience of the human body to the outside world. It can be said that language experience is inherent to human beings. However, from the perspective of theory and practice, Chinese scholars further study the experience of language on the basis of embodied philosophy and cognitive linguistics. They do not fully agree with the proof of the origin of language formation. They analyze the exposition of embodied philosophy and the experience of metaphor of foreign scholars. The embodied philosophy and language embodiment is analyzed based on the basic characteristics of the interaction, subjectivity, ambiguity and integration of embodied philosophy. Language embodiment enables people to correctly understand the nature of language, and perfect and improve linguistic cognitive and embodied philosophy. Inspired by the core theory of embodied philosophy, language cognition prompted people to discover the experiential characteristics of language and thus promoting a big step forward in understanding the nature of language. At the same time, cognitive linguistics and linguistic embodiment are analyzed. Language embodiment is further elaborated from the perspective of the pronunciation and meaning, vocabulary and grammar. The language embodiment of cognitive linguistics refers to link language vocabulary with human's sensory experience to form a process of reality-cognition-language.
