What is semiotics? This highly interdisciplinary term is used in literary theory, film studies and linguistics, but what does it mean, and how can we use it? "Key Terms in Semiotics" provides exactly the information that a student needs when encountering semiotics for the first time or as a more advanced reader wishing to do in-depth semiotic readings. The book has an introduction providing a brief historical overview of the field and an explanation what semiotic theory actually is; definitions of key terms in semiotics with practical examples and illustrations of each, ranging from simple to more complex definitions; outlines of the work of key thinkers in semiotics including Saussure, Levi-Strauss and Merleau-Ponty; key readings for students wishing to pursue further avenues of study in each area. Written in an accessible and lucid style, this book is an essential resource for anyone studying semiotics, with a background in any subject.
