Semiotics: "Semiotics, also called semiotic studies or semiology, is the study of sign processes (semiosis), or signification and communication, signs and symbols, and is usually divided into three branches:
- Semantics: Relation between signs and the things to which they refer; their denotata
- Syntactics: Relations among signs in formal structures
- Pragmatics: Relation between signs and their effects on those (people) who use them"
