Semiotics is the study of how we give meaning to words and signs. Semiotics developed from linguist studies of words and syntax that we use in writing and speaking. The two prominent theorists are Charles Sanders Pierce and Ferdinand de Saussure. Later theorists were Roland Barthes and Arthur Asa Berger. These theorists helped us understand the importance of visual signs.
