Signs & Stories

Codes and Semiotics in Family Stories


Cultural code
CULTURAL Code

  • Agreed-upon frame of reference

  • With a “grammar” (system of rules)

  • For making sense and expressing experience

  • Learned through experience


Signifiers signified
Signifiers & Signified

  • SIGN (icon, index, symbol) is the SIGNIFIER

  • OBJECT of ATTENTION is the SIGNIFIED

  • “(fire)” is the SIGNIFIED of the Index: Smoke

  • What is the SIGNIFIED of an engagement ring?

  • This network of relationships between signified and signifier is the CODE


Diachronic vs synchronic meaning
Diachronic vs. Synchronic Meaning

  • DIACHRONIC—means across time

  • SYNCHRONIC—means at one point in time


Synchronic
SYNCHRONIC

  • When something is synchronic—it happens at one point in time, and therefore, it calls for us to make sense of it—

  • We use the grammar and our experience to do that


Diachronic
DIACHRONIC

  • It happens across time—which means it has been repeated…has occurred at least at two different points in time.

  • It is the BASIS for sensemaking—the way these events are related.

  • If it’s been repeated enough to trigger an EXPECTATION—the absence of the sign will cause dissonance and require sensemaking
