Product description

Review

'This book is not only a model of an introductory textbook, but goes far beyond the limitations of that genre to give us a genuinely new and consistent view of the field. I would recommend it to anyone already researching in the field, as a way of refreshing their understanding of the potential of semiotic analysis, as well as a perfect guide for teaching students from undergraduate level up.'
- Edward McDonald, English editor at Chinese Central Television

'This is an excellent basic introduction to the subject, with a good glossary, an index, and a list of further reading.' - Mantex

Synopsis

Following the successful Basics format, this is the book for anyone coming to semiotics for the first time. Using jargon-free language and lively, up-to-date examples, Semiotics: The Basics demystifies this highly interdisciplinary subject. Along the way, the reader will find out: What is a sign? Which codes do we take for granted? What is a text? How can semiotics be used in textual analysis? Who were Saussure, Peirce, Barthes and Jakobson - and why are they important? Features include a glossary of key terms and realistic suggestions for further reading. There is also a highly-developed and long-established online version of the book at: www aber.ac.uk/media/Documents/S4B.
