Language is only created with a view to discourse, but what separates discourse from language? What allows one to assert at a given moment that language has *become active as discourse?*

Various concepts are present in language (that is, clothed in linguistic form) such as *beef, lake, sky, red, sad, five, to split, to see*. At what moment, and by virtue of what operation, what interplay between them, what conditions, do these concepts form *discourse?*

*But what is language separated from discourse? Is language the basis of discourse, or is this basis to be found, rather, in some antecedent discourse? Language, the simple repertory of isolated concepts separated from discourse (words), is an abstraction.*
