Some aspects of exemplification role in the context of sign systems

Elena Astapova-Vyazmina

Abstract




One of the major problems in sign system is the way of denotation. Any character included in the system, has certain characteristics taking into account the opportunities of its combination with other characters (inscriptions, utterances) of the system. Signs are always directly related to subjects they denote. However, we should always remember that symbols are associates with both verbal and non-verbal ways of denotation. The latter include, for example, the pictorial image, motion or gesture. The level of abstractness in sign systems complicates denotation process itself. How, for example, should one show the cold character of a subject or express joy in non-verbal system of denotation? Is the expression of certain emotions equivalent to emotions themselves and is it always possible to change their expression into their illustration? Syntactic, semantic and pragmatic aspects are compulsory for constructing the scheme of any sign system. The main problem is rooted not in the plane of construction, but in the plane of functioning of the given system in which exemplification as a way of symbolizing, proposed by Nelson Goodman in notation theory, plays a key role.
