Following the successful Basics format, this is the book for anyone
coming to semiotics for the first time. Using jargon-free language and
lively, up-to-date examples, Semiotics: The Basics demystifies this
highly interdisciplinary subject. Along the way, the reader will find
out what a sign and a text are, what codes we take for granted, how
semiotics can be used in textual analysis and who Saussure, Peirce,
Barthes and Jakobson are and why they are important. Features include
a glossary of key terms and realistic suggestions for further
reading. This book also has a highly-developed and long-established
online version of the book at:
