Semiotics Edit

As Dave Chandler writers, “[the]shortest definition is that [semiotics] is the study of signs”. According to Roland Barthes, a sign can be divided into two parts: the signifier (the word or sound associated with the signified) and the signified (meaning associated with the signified. For example, the word “University” is/are the building(s) where they teach post-secondary courses. Recently, the definition of semiotics has broaden into a study of not only linguistic signs, but signs which stand for something (i.e., body language, rituals, gestures, etc.). Kenena
