Summary/Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the essential features of the French word. The word as a sign is placed in an entirely new perspective for that time, namely the communication, concept that marked then the study of language. In another direction, more attached to the communicational approach, the structure of the word, as a sign, cannot be reduced solely to the relationship between signifier and the signified. It refers to the object to which the sign relates, e.g. to the referent. In this sense, the sign reaches a triangular dimension: referent-signifier-signified. From the perspective of the process of communication, as such, we present the famous Roman Jakobson scheme, which covers six communication factors: transmitter, receiver, channel, code, context and message. According to this method of communication, each factor determines a function of language. It is difficult to find a verbal message that can perform a single function. The diversity lies not in the monopoly of these functions, but in the hierarchy of them.
