Histoire et sciences sociales: Finally in clothes as worn or real clothesas Trubetzkoy had suggested,” we again find the classic distinction between language and speech. This is a paramount proposition, which one must always bear in mind, for there is a tendency to interpret sign as signifier, whereas this is a two-sided Janus-like entity.


The menu, for instance, illustrates very well this relationship between the language and speech: It is this double articulation which accounts for the economy of human language; for it is a powerful gearing-down which allows, for instance, American Spanish to produce, with only 2I distinctive units, semiloogia, significant units. It is the social part of language, the individual cannot by himself either create or modify it; it elementls essentially a collective contract which one must accept in its entirety if one wishes to communicate.

This redistribution by Hjelmslev is not without interest, however: This semantisation is inevitable: Allez donc I et qui sont soustraits. Cahiers Ferdinand de Saussure, IX, pp.

This of course allows us to account for systems without ‘execution’, since the first element ensures that there is a materiality of the language; and such a modification is all the more plausible since it can be explained genetically: It will be noticed an important fact when we come to semiological prospects that there could not possibly be at least according to Saussure a linguistics of speech, since any speech, as soon as it is grasped as a process of communication, is already part of the language: It will therefore be possible to have systems which are arbitrary and motivated, and others which are non-arbitrary and unmotivated.

The language is an intermediate object between sound and thought: Ce principe, issu une fois de plus de la linguistique, est le principe de pertinence 2: Moreover, this social product is autonomous, like a game with its own rules, for it can be handled only after a period of learning.


Elements of Semiology

Problems II – the proportion between ‘language’ and ‘speech’ in the various systems: This lack of motivation, is, by the way, only partial Saussure speaks of a relative analogy: It might mean, for instance, the French r as defined phonologically by its place in a series of oppositions; ii the norm, which is the language as material form, after it has been defined by some degree of social realisation, but still independent of this realisation; it would mean the r in oral French, whichever way it is pronounced but not that of written French ; iii the usage, which is the language as a set of habits prevailing in a given society: One must therefore foresee a total ideological description, common to all the systems of a given synchrony.

The Elements here presented have as their sole aim the extraction from linguistics of analytical concepts, which we think a priori to be sufficiently general to start semiological research on its way.

As far as linguistic signifiers are concerned, two sorts of classification can be conceived.

barthess Let us mention only three. Distance entre les signes: In linguistics, the nature of the signified has given rise to discussions which have centred chiefly on its degree of ‘reality’; all agree, however, on emphasising the fact that the signified is not ‘a thing’ but a mental representation of the ‘thing’. The first problem concerns the origin of the various systems, and thus touches on the very dialectics of language and speech.

It is therefore probable that at the level of the most general semiology, which merges with anthropology, there comes into being a sort of circularity between the analogical and the unmotivated: To succeed in establishing a really formal classification, one would have to succeed in ellementos oppositions of signifieds, and in isolating, within each one of these, a relevant commutative feature: In cinema, television and advertising, the senses are subjected to the concerted action of a collection of images, sounds and written words.

For a sign or an economic ‘value’ to exist, it must therefore be possible, on the one hand, to exchange dissimilar things work and wage, signifier and signifiedand on the other, to compare similar things elememtos each other.


Temps Modernes, avril-mai In fact what we purport to do is to furnish a principle of classification of the questions.

Yet, in linguistics as well as in economics, this equivalence is not isolated, for if we alter one of its terms, the whole system changes by degrees.

Elements of Semiology by Roland Barthes

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 fact remains that, although Saussure’s ideas have made great headway, semiology remains a tentative science.

In linguistics, the notion of sign does not give rise to any competition between neighbouring terms. The clarification of the signifiers is nothing but the structuralisation proper of the system.

Structural linguistics, however advanced, has not yet elaborated a semantics, that is to say a classification of the forms of the verbal signified. Le premier est celui-ci: In a wider sense, we can say that the elaborations of deciding groups, namely the logo-techniques, are themselves only the terms of an ever-widening function, which is the collective field of imagination of the epoch: But on the one hand it is not sufficient to it, and on the other, in semiology, the signifier can, too, be relayed by a certain matter: Within the language itself which is still opposed to the act of speech Hjelmslev distinguishes three planes: In semiology, where we shall have to deal with mixed systems in which different kinds of matter are involved sound and image, object and writing, etc.
