The faculty to speak and the reflection about one's language are 
inherent characteristics of human beings. According to Ferdinand de 
Saussure's thesis human language can be divided into three fundamental 
aspects: the biological preconditions for speaking (langage), the fixed 
system of rules and signs (langue) and the act of speaking itself 
(parole). The supposition that the language-system and the speechact are 
linked reciprocally and that there is no backflow into the system 
without speaking, it gets clear that the human language withdraws itself 
from an immediate observation. It can only be examined in the course of 
the reconstructing its process of appearance, that is, its articulation.

Is language thus an exclusively virtual product, the existence of which 
begins and ends up with its realization?
