Sign Relations • Semiotic Equivalence Relations 2

A few items of notation are useful in discussing equivalence relations in general and semiotic equivalence relations in particular. In general, if is an equivalence relation on a set then every element of belongs to a unique equivalence class under … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Semiotic Equivalence Relations 1

A semiotic equivalence relation (SER) is a special type of equivalence relation arising in the analysis of sign relations.  Generally speaking, any equivalence relation induces a partition of the underlying set of elements, known as the domain or space of the … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Ennotation

A third aspect of a sign’s complete meaning concerns the reference its objects have to its interpretants, which has no standard name in semiotics.  It would be called an induced relation in graph theory or the result of relational composition … Continue reading
