Romeo and Juliet, English research help: Several times in Act 2

Several times in Act 2, Juliet seems to doubt the value of words. In the balcony scene, (2.2) she famously asks “what’s in a name?” and later in scene 6 she says “they are but beggars who can count their worth [in words]” (2.6.32). Do you agree with her–that words can’t capture the most important feelings and ideas in life? Use specific examples from the play to support your answer. Including examples from your own experience as well is encouraged
