## 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

## Sign Relations • Dyadic Aspects

For an arbitrary triadic relation whether it is a sign relation or not, there are six dyadic relations obtained by projecting on one of the planes of the -space   The six dyadic projections of a triadic relation are defined … Continue reading

## Sign Relations • Examples

Because the examples to follow have been artificially constructed to be as simple as possible, their detailed elaboration can run the risk of trivializing the whole theory of sign relations.  Despite their simplicity, however, these examples have subtleties of their … Continue reading
