Semiotics

This Sunday, Lee Coate mentioned semiotics in his message.  He defined semiotics as “the study of signs” and went on to explain how this concept has inspired him to start reading billboards and retail signs aloud.  Very clever.  Lee then told us about the broader meaning of semiotics as a study of concrete language.  I found it all very intruiging because I am a language nerd and I also am a sign gazer.  Here are a few examples of ridiculous signs I have witnessed recently.
