Praise for previous volumes:
"... an excellent collection reflecting the ever-widening appeal and potential of Peirce's logic of signs." · Peirce Project Newsletter.
"To anyone interested in the cognitive bases of language and/or the theoretical foundations of linguistics, this book has a great deal to offer." · Language
Philosophers and linguists have come together for this volume to provide a glimpse of current thinking about language in a semiotic mode and of the analyses that result from applying the theory of signs of the American philosopher-scientist Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) to subjects that Peirce himself did not explore in any depth. Contributors include Victor Friedman, Laura Janda, Tony Jappy, Dinès Johansen, Dan Nesher, Joáo Queiroz, Joëlle Réthoré, Michael Shapiro, and Nils Thelin.
Michael Shapiro is Professor of Slavic and Semiotic Studies at Brown University.
