Word Up: Semiotics

This a term that Charles Sanders Peirce came up with and it refers to the study of signs and the way meanings are derived from them. This doesn't just mean a stop sign or a no-smoking sign, but rather how someone uses body language (smiles, high-fives) and even clothing to represent feelings, etc. What you are wearing can symbolize to others a certain vibe, so watch out you little hipsters!
