This article aims to explicit how does the specificity of the vocal aspect of enunciation constitutes the relationship man, language, and culture in the act of language acquisition. Therefore, it focuses on the role of vocal arrangements on children’s language. The analysis is based on the significant purposes about the significance discussed by Benveniste, which are executed in language experience through language interpretation regarding other systems. This experience reveals the social semantism embedded to vocal and evoked in each relation of language interpretation: the child, thus, by mobilizing vocal arrangements in its enunciation, seizes the general on language and, on the other hand, the culture it holds, in order to obtain singularity through it. The constitutive vocal arrangements of the emission and perception acts allow, thereby, that the child, as immersed in cultural schemes, establish itself on the formal vocal language set, in order to obtain singularity as subject of/on language.
