We talked about Iconicity. Icon refers to natural resemblance between the form of the sign or the object or concept in the world.
- Our perception is based on our knowledge.
- What we think of REALITY is actually our perception of the REALITY.
Two types of iconicity
- Diagrammatic Iconicity ---> is concern with structural similarity between the sign and the object.
- Imagic Iconicity --> is concern with substantial similarity between the sign and the object.
