La valeur en linguistique. Ce principe, issu une fois de plus de la linguistique, est le epementos de pertinence 2: We have seen that in the definition of the sign by Wallon, this representative character was a relevant feature of the sign and the symbol as opposed to the index and the signal.

If, however, this artificial character does not alter the institutional nature of the communication and preserves some amount of dialectical play between the system and usage, it is because, in the first place, although imposed on the users, the signifying ‘contract’ is no less observed by the great majority of them otherwise the user is marked with a certain ‘asociability’: As a system of values, a language is made of a certain number of elements, each one of which is at the same time the equivalent of a given quantity of things and a term of a larger function, in which are found, in a differential order, other correlative values: These transfers can here be read horizontally: But we see also that these contradictions – which in this table are read vertically – are very well explained, or rather, that they compensate each other through transfers of meaning from term to term in the same author.

Having thus carefully distinguished, with Saussure, signification and value, we immediately see that if we return to Hjemslev’s strata substance and formthe signification partakes of the substance of the content, and value, of that of its form mutton and sheep are in a paradigmatic relation as signifieds and not, of course, as signifiers.

And indeed it must be acknowledged in advance that such an investigation is both diffident and rash: Martinet dans le ch. The situation could not be essentially different in semiology, where objects, images, gestures, etc. And indeed the signification semiosis does not unite unilateral entities, it does not conjoin two terms, for the very good reason that signifier and signified are both at once term and relation.

We shall therefore say in general terms that in the language the link between signifier and signified is contractual in its principle, but that this contract sekiologia collective, inscribed in a long temporality Saussure says that ‘a language is always a legacy’and that consequently it is, as it were, naturalised; in the same way, Levi-Strauss specified that the linguistic sign is arbitrary a priori but non-arbitrary a posteriori.


What is missing, in any case, contrary to what happened in the garment system, is the action of a deciding group: Sociologie et Anthropologie, P.

These can occur either isologically or not; in the latter case, they are taken up, through articulated language, either by a word week-end or by a group of words long walks in the country ; they are thereby easier to handle, since the analyst is not forced to impose on them his own metalanguage, but also more dangerous, since they ceaselessly refer back to the semantic classification of the language itself which is itself unknownand not to a classification having its bases in the system under observation.

The first half of the book is reproduced here.

Problems II – the proportion between ‘language’ and ‘speech’ in the various systems: We see the theoretical consequences: To succeed in establishing a really formal classification, one would have to succeed in reconstituting oppositions of signifieds, and in isolating, within each one of these, a relevant commutative feature: Thus appear in fact two fundamental planes: On the one hand, the language is ‘the treasure deposited by the practice of speech, in the subjects belonging to the same community’ and, since it is a collective summa of individual imprints, it bbarthes remain ad at the level of each isolated individual: Arbitraire et motivation en linguistique.

Sur ce point, on notera elemmentos tentatives suivantes. The relations of determination ‘ between speech, usage, norm and schema are varied: Preliminaries to Speech Analysis, Cambridge, Mass, Langue, Parole et sciences humaines. This formalisation of the language and socialisation of speech enables us to put all the ‘positive’ and ‘substantial’ elements under the heading of speech, and all the differentiating ones under that of the language, and the advantage of this, as we shall see presently, is to remove one of the contradictions brought about by Saussure’s distinction between the language and the speech.

The manifest affinity of the language according to Saussure and of Durkheim’s conception of a collective consciousness independent of its individual manifestations has been emphasised very early on. Hjelmslev, for instance, decomposes a moneme like ‘mare’ into two smaller significant units: He also broadened the notion by postulating that any process presupposes a system: The combinative aspect of speech is of course of capital importance, for it implies that speech is constituted by the recurrence of identical signs: Finally in clothes as worn or real clothesas Trubetzkoy had suggested,” we again find the classic distinction between language and speech.

The signified and the signifier, in Saussurean terminology, are the components of the sign. Nature of the signified: These discussions, however, still bear the stamp of psychologism, so the analysis of the Stoics will perhaps be thought preferable.


The language, in the garment system, is made i by the oppositions of pieces, parts of garment and ‘details’, the variation of which entails a change in meaning to wear a beret or a bowler hat does not have the same meaning ; ii by the rules which govern the association of the pieces among themselves, either on the length of the body or in depth.

The sign-function bears witness to a double movement, which semiologiq be taken apart.

By this inversion we may expect to bring to light the unity of the research at present being done in anthropology, sociology, psychoanalysis and stylistics round the concept of signification. The signification can be conceived as a process; it is the act which binds the signifier and the signified, an act whose product is the sign.

The car system, the furniture system: One can for instance ask some subjects about the meaning they attribute to a piece of music by submitting to them a list of verbalised signifieds anguished, stormy, sombre, tormented, etc. Brondal writes, ‘A language is a purely abstract entity, a norm which stands above individuals, a set of essential types, which speech actualises in an infinite variety of ways.

Comment choisir le corpus sur lequel on va travailler? In the car system, the language is made up by a whole set of forms and details, the structure of which is established differentially by comparing the prototypes to each other independently of the number of their ‘copies’ ; the scope of ‘speech’ is very narrow because, for a given status of buyer, freedom in choosing a model is very restricted: What is given by the fashion photograph is a semi-formalised state of baarthes garment system: This is already to some extent the case of the most ‘motivated’ zone of language, that of onomatopoeia.

Let us now take another signifying system: The first problem concerns the origin of the various systems, and thus touches on the very dialectics of language and speech. Elemetnos particular, signal and index, symbol and sign, are the terms of two different functions, which can themselves be opposed-as a whole, as they do in Wallon, whose terminology is the clearest and the most complete icon and allegory are confined to the vocabulary of Peirce and Jung.

The institutional and the systematic aspect are of course connected: Le discours et le symbole, Aubier, In Saussure, the sign appears, in his demonstration, as the vertical extension of a situation in depth:
