Abstract:

This original research applies semiotics to linguistic and non-linguistic
segments in a text in search of potential correlations between them. The
resultant mapping is applied to cases of gesture-word mismatches that are
evident in conflict situations. The current study adopts the word systems
approach, a sign-based theory that is naturally designed for the analysis
of linguistic signs, and extends it to non-linguistic units, borrowing
analytical tools from the field of dance movement therapy. The variety of
interdisciplinary metaphorical and literal interpretations of the analyzed
signs enriches the theoretical framework and facilitates examination of the
instances of mismatches. Hence, this study makes a meaningful contribution
to the understanding of linguistic/non-linguistic mismatches in situations
of conflict. Further, it makes more general claims: the semiotic system
underlying this study paves the way for further research of correlations
(or lack thereof) between a range of phenomena cutting across sociology,
sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and political science.
