The emitter-receiver pair seems primordial, however, since communication enters into the implementation of the three parts of the narrative syntagm (contract, performance, recognition). At the level of manifestation, one observes that the actants may appear in the form of one or several actors and that, conversely, a single actor can carry out different actant roles at different times (emitter and receiver can even be one and the same person). Finally, in a general way, one observes that the meaning of a term depends on its relation to the other relevant terms, and that substitutions result from choices, constrained by the need to preserve unaltered the meaning of the other elements.

In this perspective, the construction of meaning implies the interaction of a certain number of different levels: a) the level of manifestation (surface), which is that of data and the meaning it is given; b) the thematic level, which contains the implicit stock of social knowledge that allows meaning to be given to the surface level data; c) the deep level, with the basic structures of meaning that are not linked to the environment but tend toward universality, not only in the framework of the different types of discourse in a given society, but also “interculturally” (Jackson, 1995).
