    Signs, Dialogue and Ideology illustrates and critically examines — both historically and theoretically — the current state of semiotic discourse from Peirce to Bakhtin, through Saussure, Levinas, Schaff and Rossi-Landi to modern semioticians such as Umberto Eco.

  • Whose Language?by Jacob L. Mey

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 188.00

    "For the colonized person, objectivity is always directed against him" (Frantz Fanon). Colonized persons do not live on what we call (or used to call) the "colonies" alone. In general, objective reality, or the "facts of life", are very different depending on the kind of life you can afford. This goes for language as well; and it explains both the... more...

  • Niklas Luhmanns Systemtheorie und Charles S. Peirces Zeichentheorieby Werner Scheibmayr

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 196.00

    This study is the first to make a systematic attempt to relate the universal theories of Niklas Luhmann (1927-1998) and Charles S. Peirce (1839-1914) to one another. On the basis of a critical functional analysis of systems theory and semiotic theory, a newly designed semiotic system is proposed that displays a higher resolution and recombination potential... more...

  • Language Useby Pär Segerdahl

    Palgrave Macmillan 1995; US$ 141.00

    Language Use offers a philosophical examination of the basic conceptual framework of pragmatic theory, and contrasts this framework with detailed descriptions of our everyday practices of language use. While the results should be highly relevant to pragmatics, the investigation is not a contribution to pragmatic theory. Drawing on Ludwig Wittgenstein's... more...

  • Rethinking Narrative Identityby Claudia Holler; Martin Klepper

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 135.00

    This paper addresses identity construction in confessional poetry and explores three poems by Anne Sexton in closer detail. It shows that identity in lyrical texts can be discussed more poignantly by using the concept of narrative identity. A close reading of the three poems reveals three different self-concepts, the possibility of multiple selves,... more...

  • Modelling Languageby Sylviane Cardey

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 135.00

    In response to the need for reliable results from natural language processing, this book presents an original way of decomposing a language(s) in a microscopic manner by means of intra/inter‑language norms and divergences, going progressively from languages as systems to the linguistic, mathematical and computational models, which being based... more...
