without a solution to this disturbing problem there can be no system,
no classification.

When I speak it is in order to be heard.
- Roman Jakobson

In poetic language, in which the sign as such takes on an autonomous value,
this sound symbolism becomes an actual factor and creates
a sort of accompaniment to the signified.
- Roman Jakobson

Every linguistic sign is located on two axes:
the axis of simultaneity and that of succession.
- Roman Jakobson

like any verbal sign, is a unity of two components.

The search for the symbolic value of phonemes,
each taken as a whole, runs the risk of giving rise
to ambiguous and trivial interpretations because phonemes are complex entities,
bundles of different distinctive features.
- Roman Jakobson

For example, the opposition between acute and grave
phonemes has the capacity to suggest an image of bright and dark,
of pointed and rounded, of thin and thick,
of light and heavy, etc.
- Roman Jakobson

Acoustic phonetics, which is developing and increasing
in richness very rapidly,
already enables us to solve many of the mysteries of sound,
mysteries which motor phonetics could not even begin to solve.
- Roman Jakobson

Instead of following one another the sounds overlap;
a sound which is acoustically perceived as coming after
another one can be articulated simultaneously with
the latter or even in part before it.
- Roman Jakobson

The task is to investigate speech sounds in relation
to the meanings with which they are invested,
i.e., sounds viewed as signifiers, and above all to
throw light on the structure of the relation between sounds and meaning.
- Roman Jakobson

Remember that the pharynx is at a crossroads from which leads off,

If we ask a vague question, such as,
'What is poetry?' we expect a vague answer,
such as, 'Poetry is the music of words,'
or 'Poetry is the linguistic correction of disorder.'

The ambiguities of language, both in terms of vocabulary and syntax,
are fascinating: how important connotation is,
what is lost and what is gained in the linguistic transition.
- Marilyn Hacker

Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
- Paul de Man

Logic and mathematics are nothing but specialised linguistic structures.
- Jean Piaget

I believe that political correctness can be a form of linguistic fascism,
and it sends shivers down the spine of my generation
who went to war against fascism.
- P. D. James

account in their epistemology,
but they affirm that logical beings and mathematical
beings are nothing but linguistic structures.
- Jean Piaget

pronouns even though they are a mere linguistic device
that has never meant that God is male?

and consistently handled in terms of linguistic symbolism.

then, obviously, the only possible link between the
objective world and the linguistic world is found in structure,
and structure alone.
