Anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss used Structuralism and langue and parole to understand myths and tales within a broader context.
The synchronic analysis focues more directly on how the pieces interact to reveal the rules of the game. The synchronic approach of English in America today would look at things like texting, e-mail, and all modes of expressing language in order to see how those manifestations of language reveal the structure of a language.

It was the system by which meaning could be created that was of interest rather than individual instances of its use. The sound pattern for each notion can be extremely diverse and vice versa.
As a function[ edit ] The underlying basis to langue is the interpretation that it is made up of signs and not sentences. Saussure used the example of chess to explain how langue and parole work together.
Reviews, commentaries and critics of both the Course in General Linguistics and original notes made by Saussure have revealed much controversy over time. Course in general linguistics[ edit ] Saussure did not publish his notes in relation to linguistics and langue and parole.
