Conversations with Lotman : cultural semiotics in language, literature, and cognition by Edna Andrews( )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conversations with Lotman is a critical analysis of the central contributions of Russian cultural historian and theoretician Jurij Lotman to the study of semiotics, including his writings on the 'semiotics of culture' and the 'semiotics of artistic space', and his efforts to model the production of cultural knowledge and how it is shared in any functioning semiotic space. Edna Andrews builds a narrative around Lotman's work by presenting the major principles of his cultural semiotic theory, including his doctrine of signs, his definition of the 'semiosphere', and his modelling of communication as a means to create new knowledge and to share old knowledge."--Jacket

Markedness theory : the union of asymmetry and semiosis in language by Edna Andrews( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edna Andrews clarifies and extends the work of Roman Jakobson to develop a theory of invariants in language by distinguishing between general and contextual meaning in morphology and semantics. Markedness theory, as Jakobson conceived it, is a qualitative theory of oppositional binary relations. Andrews shows how markedness theory enables a linguist to precisely define the systemically given oppositions and hierarchies represented by linguistic categories. In addition, she redefines the relationship between Jakobsonian markedness theory and Peircean interpretants. Though primarily theoret

Markedness Theory( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edna Andrews clarifies and extends the work of Roman Jakobson to develop a theory of invariants in language by distinguishing between general and contextual meaning in morphology and semantics. Markedness theory, as Jakobson conceived it, is a qualitative theory of oppositional binary relations. Andrews shows how markedness theory enables a linguist to precisely define the systemically given oppositions and hierarchies represented by linguistic categories. In addition, she redefines the relationship between Jakobsonian markedness theory and Peircean interpretants. Though primarily theoretical, the argument is illustrated with discussions about learning a second language, the relationship of linguistics to mathematics (particularly set theory, algebra, topology, and statistics) in their mutual pursuit of invariance, and issues involving grammatical gender and their implications in several languages

A theoretical foundation for markedness : asymmetry in language from a mathematical perspective by Edna Andrews( )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of opposition is an assumption crucial to the analysis of language as a systematic structure. The development of a markedness theory allows for further refinement of oppositional relationships within language. The definition of markedness derived in this dissertation will correspond to Roman Jakobson's empirically derived definition for morphological markedness. Therefore, the term "marked" means the PRESENCE of a property or properties; it does not simply define a relationship. The values of the resultant features will necessarily be attached to properties of MEANING, defined by an axiomatic base. The axioms and theorems used are derived from similar axioms and theorems in mathematical Set Theory. Through this analysis, one will be able to both rigorously define markedness theory for language and apply it in a similarly rigorous fashion to actual language data. The theoretical point of view of this dissertation is indicative of a particular branch of Jakobsonian linguistics led by C. H. van Schooneveld. The derivation of a markedness theory based on a mathematical axiomatic system, founded in Set Theory, is one of the unique characteristics in this dissertation
