Jens‐Erik Mai
2001 Journal of Documentation

Peircean Semiotics and Subject Indexing: Contributions of Speculative Grammar and Pure Logic

Carlos Cândido de Almeida, Mariângela Spotti Lopes Fujita, Daniela Marjorie dos Reis
2013 Knowledge organization  
Secondly, and aiming to raise the level of interlocution between the areas, we intend to argue that subject indexing is an inferential process, as explained by the second branch of semiotics.  ...  We believe that the main difficulty in the proposals to understand the process of subject indexing based on Peircean semiotics stems from an incomplete interpretation of his semiotic system.  ...  Before engaging in an analysis of the influence of Peircean semiotics on indexing, with respect to the semiotic process of indexing and its inferential character, we must circumscribe the theoretical dimension  ...

Indexicality and the Verification Function of Irreplaceable Possessions: A Semiotic Analysis

Kent Grayson, David Shulman
2000 Journal of Consumer Research  
We apply the semiotic concept of indexicality to extend our understanding of how meanings are embedded in irreplaceable special possessions.  ...  Our research also reemphasizes the value of semiotic frameworks as applied to research on possession ownership and sheds additional light on the value of authenticity to consumers.  ...  Data collection and analysis. Study 2 used an experimental design in which quantitative subject responses were analyzed using factor analysis and ANOVA.  ...

Perception, Dreams, Films: Iconicity and Indexicality in Peirce's Theory of Perception

Anne Dymek
2013 Recherches Sémiotiques / Semiotic Inquiry  
Seen from the angle of Peirce's semiotics of the photograph, the subject of the filmic images taken in their function as Dicent (Indexical) Sinsigns must be "an Index of a Second existing independently  ...  This Peircian definition of external and internal realities is very semiotic in nature : signs with an indexical predominance are more likely to be part of an external reality, whereas the experience of  ...  This will imply an analysis of the roles of iconicity and indexicality in perception and of their relation to cinema's "impression of reality".  ...

Translation and semiotic mediation

Winfried Nöth
2012 Sign Systems Studies  
The paper inquires into the parallels between the agency of the sign in semiosis and the agency of the interpreter (and translator) in translation.  ...  It argues that some of the limits and limitations of translatability are also the limits of the sign in semiosis.  ...  In contrast to the studies by these authors, who are concerned with semiotic aspects of translation proper, the present paper focuses mainly on translation as a metaphor to elucidate the process of semiotic  ...

Pragmatics and Semiotics

Per Aage Brandt
2021 Revista Acta Semiotica  
The cognitive theory of mental spaces and conceptual blending needed a semiotic and, as suggested in the article, a semio-pragmatic grounding in order to grow out of its initial format as a philosophical  ...  Semiotics and pragmatics are interconnected, and their bonds are indissoluble ; if cut off, pragmatics would become a part of psychology and semiotics a specialty of linguistics.  ...  Hence the interest of Barthes' analysis : if social power is a pragmatic effect of socio-semiotic structures, a possible counter-force may be sought in critical structural commentary.  ...

Social Semiotics and Fieldwork

Phillip Vannini
2007 Qualitative Inquiry  
Indexes, in fact, are merely the semiotic effect of natural phenomena. Smoke, for example, is indexical of fire; raised hair is indexical of fear, and so on.  ...  As an investigation of semiotic experience, sociosemiotic ethnography is about the ideological worlds that people make through semiotic resources and about the contested meanings and subjectivities that  ...

Coherence and truthfulness in communication: Intracommunicational and extracommunicational indexicality

Lars Elleström
2018 Semiotica: Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies  
To investigate these two functions, further concepts and various elementary categorizations are proposed: it is argued that there are several types of contiguity and many varieties of indexical objects  ...  However, an investigation of indices' outward direction – creating truthfulness in communication – also requires an understanding of their inward direction: establishing coherence.  ...  The index is the semiotic backbone of my account of coherence and truthfulness in communication. As is often the case in Peirce's writings, this notion is circumscribed in slightly shifting ways.  ...

On Semiotics and Education

Luis Radford
2013 Éducation et didactique  
A "semiotic approach" to education, that is an educational approach that draws from semiotics, cannot consist in the mere amalgamation of a semiotic theory and an educational one.  ...  After discussing the epistemic role of signs in two major epistemological theories (Leibniz' s and Piaget' s), I present an example of a semiotic approach to education that I illustrate around a classroom  ...  the embodied, and material semiotic enactment of such processes.  ...

After analysis of various semiotic kinds of void, the article examines the difficulty of computational handling of void and suggests possible paths towards a more human-oriented form of information representation  ...  The objective of this article is to present a semiotic analysis of voidwhich in this article is the spacio-temporal empty space existing in any representation-in order to consider the representation of  ...  The first point derives from content processing within computer science. It entails construction of various corpora founded on analysis of the content.  ...
