Semiotic Foundations of Information Science. Progress Report Number 1.
Pearson, Charls; Slamecka, Vladimir
Research on the role of semiosis--a process in which something functions as a sign to an organism--in information processes is described. The object of the study is the structure of various types of signs, and a determination of the relationship between sign structure and information properties. The two goals focused on during the period for which the report was written include: (1) the determination of the internal structure of various sign categories and the relationship between internal and external structure, and (2) formal explication of information including its relationship to semiotic processes and a determination of the essential dimensions of semiosis. Research findings are reported under six headings: (1) theory of sign structure, (2) syntactic developments of theory, (3) investigations into syntactic shape, (4) investigations into semantic and pragmatic structure, (5) project activities, and (6) miscellaneous reports and findings.
