Sample text

En revanche, chacun des groupements de traits, qu’on traite souvent de « phonétique », forme un symbole en soi complet et correspond d’ordinaire, beaucoup mieux qu e le radical, à ce que nous pourrions être tentés d’appeler une racine. Solidaire d’un signe vocal dans lequel on tient à voir une valeur d’emblème, le signe graphique est lui-même considéré comme une figuration adéquate, ou plutôt, si je puis dire, comme une appellation efficace.
