Semiotics and Language

Università Telematica Internazionale UNINETTUNO

The course provides the theoretical basis for semiotic and linguistic studies as well as a general descriptive framework for the study of the specific uses of language and/or foreign languages. Building on the concept of "sign," rendered as a multidimensional image, we investigate different types of codes and languages, illustrating the salient properties of each. The third part of the course focuses on the prominent communicative tool of human communities, languages, for which the general semiotic characters are presented, weaving analyses with an eye towards the ultimate goals of language: cognition and interaction. Finally, an initial investigation of the special purposes of languages, and different types of discourse and texts, introduces the application of theoretical knowledge in order to navigate the complex and varied universe of the concrete manifestations of verbal language.
