Title: Semblance and Signification
Edited By: Pascal Michelucci
Olga Fischer
Christina Ljungberg
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ill.10
Series Title: Iconicity in Language and Literature 10
Description:

The articles assembled in "Semblance and Signification" explore linguistic
and literary structures from a range of theoretical perspectives with a view to
understanding the extent, prevalence, productivity, and limitations of iconically
grounded forms of semiosis. With the complementary examination of large
theoretical issues, extensive corpus analysis in several modern languages such
as Italian, Japanese Sign Language, and English, and applied close studies
across a range of artistic media, this volume brings a fresh understanding of the
cognitive underpinnings of iconicity. If primary and secondary modelling
systems are rarely studied in tandem, it is clear from this volume that their
fruitful juxtaposition yields striking insight into the cognitive concerns that
pervade current semiotic research.
