Abstract:

Signs in Use is an accessible introduction to the study of semiotics.
All organisms, from bees to computer networks, create signs,
communicate, and exchange information. The field of semiotics explores
the ways in which we use these signs to make inferences about the
nature of the world. Signs in Use cuts across different semiotic
schools to introduce six basic concepts which present semiotics as a
theory and a set of analytical tools: code, sign, discourse, action,
text, and culture. Moving from the most simple to the most complex
concept, the book gradually widens the semiotic perspective to show
how and why semiotics works as it does. Each chapter covers a problem
encountered in semiotics and explores the key concepts and relevant
notions found in the various theories of semiotics. Chapters build
gradually on knowledge gained, and can also be used as self-contained
units for study when supported by the extensive glossary.
