Most people when I say I'm taking a course in semiotics look at me blankly, because they haven't got a clue what semiotics is. And neither did I even after several lessons! Why take the course I hear you ask? Well after reading Chandler's Semiotics The Basics (and using the online version) I can say that the book helped me. I now enjoy the course and I'm writing a semiotics paper... If I get a terrible grade I'll post again. Look up Chandler Semiotics on any search engine and you will probably find an online version of this book. But after buying and reading this new updated version on my Kindle I would say that this version is much better.
