Signs represent a presence in its absence; the 'sign would be a deferred presence' (Specters of Marx, p. 138). Differance announces both the differential character of the sign and the deferral of the sign's meaning. Difterance names the play between meaning and difference: 'we shall designate by the term differance the movement by which language, or any code, any system of reference in general, becomes "historically" constituted as a fabric of differences' (Speech and Phenomena, p.
