One of the research steps in our doctoral thesis was the epistemological analysis of some French works in semiotics, based on a set of epistemological parameters of Louis Hjelmslev's theory of language. During this stage, some questions related to these parameters remained unanswered, leading to a deeper investigation of L. Hjelmslev's own work. Starting from the foundations of the Hjelmslevian thought, notably from the work of his main precursor, Ferdinand de Saussure, this new step of our investigation may take into account the confrontation between the epistemological parameters of this structuralist chain and the parameters of other limitrophe epistemological chains. By the moment, parameters that rule the post-structuralism, deconstructivism and phenomenology are indentified as limitrophes. With this confrontation, we seek to understand if these different kinds of knowledge acquisition can support each other, or can cause oppositions creating conflicts that threaten the theory consistency.
