When you ask a question about what something is, you are asking a question about its ontology.  But signhood is not a matter of ontology, it is a form of relation.

Here again is that budget of excerpts on Determination, mostly Peirce with a few others before and after his time, all of which I collected back when I was turning my hand to the cybernetic and intelligent systems engineering prospects of Peirce’s theories of information, inquiry, and signs.

Contemporary conceptions of determination and determinacy in mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering are covered by the concept of constraint and generalize beyond absolute determinism to degrees and measures of determination, ranging from none at all to totality.
