The essay analyses the central ontological gesture of the Prague School (or Prague Linguistic Circle) on the examples of Jindřich Honzl's seminal text on the theatrical sign and Roman Jakobson's later essay on translation. This ontological gesture is contextualised historically and politically with the PLC's activities in its early decades, and proposes a radical and perhaps provocative revision of the notions of the sign and the Prague School taxonomy in general with a view to the non-conceptual (or pre-conceptual) understanding of the signifying process. Honzl refers back to and elaborates on Zich and his revolutionary statement that "a stage stops being a stage once it ceases to represent something"; in doing so it precludes any nominalist assumptions that would prime the signifying process.
