Ferdinand Saussure[edit]

  • "A sign is the basic unit of language (a given language at a given time). Every language is a complete system of signs. Parole (the speech of an individual) is an external manifestation of language."
  • "A linguistic system is a series of differences of sounds combined with a series of differences of ideas."
  • "The connection between the signifier and the signified is arbitrary."
  • "In language there are only differences, and no positive terms"
  • "Speaking of linguistic law in general is like trying to pin down a ghost"
