Structuralism is a strategy for insightful examination or technique for thought used by different French authors, scholars, theorists, critics, anthropologists and semioticians who, since the 1960's have been called Structuralists. Despite the way that structuralism has no essential vocabulary or specific standards, some structuralists use interdisciplinary strategies attempting to develop an objective method that will tie together their different fields. The purpose behind this paper is to depict the real impact of Saussurean frameworks in Structuralism.

Key Words: Saussure, Structuralism, System, Structure, & Linguistics.
