Title: Meaning As Explanation: Advances in Linguistic Sign Theory
Edited By: Ellen Contini-Morava
Barbara Sussman Goldberg
Description:

A collection of papers from theoretical perspectives that share a conception of language as a system of meaningful signs. In sign-oriented theories the distribution of linguistic forms is explained in terms of the contribution of their meanings to the message communicated, and the data are drawn from actual discourse rather than invented, decontextualized examples. Includes comparison of theory and method among major sign-oriented approaches, and analyses of data from a variety of languages.
