Kristeva, speaking directly to what I'm up to:

"All functions which suppose a frontier (in this case the fissure created by the act of naming and the logico-linguistic synthesis which it sets off) and the transgression of that frontier (the sudden appearance of new signifying chains) are relevant to any account of signifying practice, where practice is taken as meaning the acceptance of a symbolic law together with the transgression of that law for the purpose of renovating it."

("The System and the Speaking Subject," in The Kristeva Reader, ed. Toril Moi.  Blackwell, 1986, p. 29)
