    Existential semiotics is a new paradigm in the studies of signs, signification, and communication.

    Dependencies ? directed labeled graph structures representing hierarchical relations between morphemes, words, and semantic units ? are the standard representation in many fields of computational linguistics. The linguistic significance of these structures often remains vague, however, and those working in the field stress the need for the development... more...
