This is the essence of Jakobson’s double-edged use of the word equivalence. In non-poetic texts an unusual or unexpected substitution of a term from the paradigmatic axis involves a conspicuous departure from the dominant and parallel progression of syntagm and referential continuum. In poetry the intrinsic, textual parallelism of syntax, metre and sound pattern literally destabilises this compositional and interpretive relationship. In nonpoetic language the distinction between metaphor and metonymy is secured by the extratextual, ideational images created by the text: in poetry material, textual figures and devices create a constant interplay between the structural features of the text and their referential counterparts.
The principle of equivalence is projected from the axis of selection into the axis of combination. This thesis guarantees the status of poetry not simply as a separate linguistic genre, but as an expressive, indeed an existential, condition that is structurally and functionally unique. Poetry is the only kind of linguistic discourse in which the encoder’s command of the signans predetermines the relation between the signatum and the perceptual, experiential continuum of the prelinguistic world.
The following is from a 1960 paper on ‘Linguistics and Communication Theory’. Language presents two considerably different aspects when seen from the two ends of the communication channel. Roughly the encoding process goes from meaning to sound and from the lexico-grammatical to the phonological level, whereas the decoding process displays the opposite direction—from sound to meaning and from features to symbols. While a set (Einstellung) toward immediate constituents takes precedence in speech production, for speech perception the message is first a stochastic process.
