  • Creative Dynamicsby Christina Ljungberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 135.00

    How do readers make sense of a picture, a photograph, or a map in literary narratives in which visual signs play a critical role? How do authors accomplish their various objectives in constructing such complex texts? What strategies and techniques do they use to project fictional worlds and to provide their readers with the means for orienting themselves... more...

  • Thinking with Diagramsby Sybille Krämer; Christina Ljungberg

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 140.00

    Diagrammatic reasoning is crucial for human cognition. It is hard to think of any forms of science or knowledge without the "intermediary world" of diagrams and diagrammatic representation in thought experiments and/or processes, manifested in forms as divers as notes, tables, schemata, graphs, drawings and maps. Despite their phenomenological... more...

  • Insistent Imagesby Elzbieta Tabakowska; Christina Ljungberg; Olga Fischer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 195.00

    This paper analyses the complexity of intermedial iconicity through the analysis of Laurie Anderson’s piece White Lily . It reveals the media aesthetic strategies by which Anderson enacts the abstract concept of time through the iconic use of language as well as through iconicity in music, gesture and computer animation. The performer’s multimodal... more...

  • Semblance and Significationby Pascal Michelucci; Olga Fischer; Christina Ljungberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 158.00

    This article explores the various layers of iconicity in John Irving’s novel A Widow for One Year , which abounds in iconic images, diagrams and metaphors, and Todd Williams’ movie adaptation, The Door in the Floor . Intra-medial and intermedial forms of iconicity are brought into focus, as they weave the complex web of cross-, self-... more...

  • Iconic Investigationsby Lars Elleström; Olga Fischer; Christina Ljungberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 158.00

    This paper proposes an integrated account of the formal and functional non-uniformity exhibited by sound-symbolic words based on a hierarchy of lexical iconicity (i.e., iconicity of words). It is argued that the more iconic a vocalized sign is, the less strongly it is constrained by the linguistic system. This crosslinguistic generalization is instantiated... more...

  • Dimensions of Iconicityby Angelika Zirker; Matthias Bauer; Olga Fischer; Christina Ljungberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 158.00

    In this paper, we propose that the iconicity of Logical Form can help us evaluate the adequateness of an interpretation. We consider the relationship between iconicity, literary texts, formal semantic analysis and interpretation. With the help of an example taken from the poem “This was a Poet –” (Fr446, J448) by Emily Dickinson,... more...

  • Signergyby C. Jac Conradie; Ronél Johl; Marthinus Beukes; Olga Fischer; Christina Ljungberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    A fundamental issue with reference to the translation process concerns the type of relation between the original and the translated text. Peirce indicates three possibilities: icon, index and symbol. For many scholars it is a given that the relation of similarity between the original text and the translated text predominates and that the iconic relation... more...
