Additionally, semiology can also be interpreted as the attempt to study reality as a text. There is not a single part of our reality that cannot in some way, shape or form be considered part of a text....   [tags: Linguistics, Ferdinand de Saussure, Semiotics]

Semiotics: The Science of Signs and Symbols

- Twentieth century Swiss linguist and semiotician Ferdinand de Saussure designates semiotics as the systematic science of signs.

Where language was once the way we understood society, signs have taken their place. Consider the “M” for McDonald’s or the Castle for Disney, even the “Disney font.” We seldom recognize these companies by what we have heard about them and more for the symbols we see and associate them with....   [tags: Ferdinand de Saussure, Systematic Science of Signs]

The Duchess of Malfi: A Character Study

- Webster based his plot on a true story set in Italy, a story that has as central themes inequality, injustice, and corruption. In my opinion one of the best techniques that Webster used to transmit these themes was to make the characters appear to be something that they are not. Furthermore, all the important characters of the play have both good and bad sides, and some of them (Cardinal) are “bad” but appear to be “good”. This contrast between good and bad and the changes of personality, help the author to build a play full of tragedy and therefore this maintains the reader’s attention focused on the play and anxious to see what is going to happen next....   [tags: The Duchess of Malfi]
