With the reference to the typology of slips of the tongue classified by D.Carroll, this paper displays some slips of the tongue by analyzing and comparing some examples of the speech errors. Most of these examples of slips of the tongue are collected in our daily life in both English and Chinese. So, it allowed us to prove the general existence of the psychological representation of human language and to illustrate the evidence provided by them to help us know better about the psychological process of speech production.
