“Langue is the whole system of language that precedes and makes speech possible while parole is the concrete use of the language, the actual utterances.”(“Langue and Parole”) Different types of langue have different elements. Language, for example, is characterized by grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation. The end result or parole would be speech. According to Ferdinand de Saussare, "parole is a dynamic, social activity in a particular time and space." ("Parole") For our video, we used the different techniques of television grammar and set it in our short spiel of a typical day for an Ateneo student. We thought that it would be an easy and fun way to showcase langue and parole.
