Along the way, the reader will find out:* what is a sign?* which codes do we take for granted?* what is a text?* how can semiotics be used in textual analysis?* who were Saussure, Peirce, Barthes and Jakobson - and why are they important?Features include a glossary of key terms and realistic suggestions for further reading. There is also a highly-developed and long-established online version of the book at: www.aber.ac.uk/media/Documents/S4B
