Semiotics and Second-Language Pedagogy


James W. Brown

Semiotics has had an enormous impact on interdisciplinary studies over the past twenty years, yet in spite of its methodological and practical influences on literary criticism, art, architecture and music to name but a few areas, no full-length study of its applications to second-language education has appeared to date. Semiotics and Second-Language Pedagogy presents a coherent synthesis of semiotics and second-language pedagogical concepts. In addition to a speculative part, it has an applied part where theoretical insights are made explicit and shown to operate in actual teaching.
