Semiotic Foundations of Information Science. Program Report No. 2.
Pearson, Charls; Slamecka, Vladimir
This study is designed to help provide an understanding of the role semiosis plays in information processes. The object of study is the structure of various types of signs, and a determination of the relationship between sign structure and information properties. A review of the theory of sign structure is followed by an examination of syntactic levels of the universal structure model. Investigations into syntactic shape, semantic structure, and pragmatic structure are summarized. The semiotics laboratory of the Georgia Institute of Technology is described, and activities in semiotics and information science are reviewed. (CH)
