From Library Journal
Mapping a discipline as new as semiotics involves not only compilation and description, but making substantive choices regarding the taxonomy and dimensions of the field. Noth succeeds admirably in this formidable undertaking. He casts a wide net, incorporating a variety of perspectives: historical, systematic, generic, and institutional. While the individual entries may be too brief to aid a specialist in his own field, Noth's book does provide a workable framework for relating disciplines to each other and to the pioneering theorists of the field, from Peirce to Jakobson. Noth rounds out his work with a treatment of the most recent developments and the provision of extensive, up-to-date bibliographical data. Recommended for academic libraries.
