Steps for Saussure?

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:34 pm by Breana

Step 1. Look at the lines from the first word

Step 2. Figure out which language it is my process of elimination

Step 3. Look at the words one by one

Step 4. Think of its meaning or what that word signifies. Try to see which meaning the author is going for by thinking of all the meanings for that word.

Step 5. Re-read the poem with the final interpretations.

    I don’t understand the first step…did you mean look at the word’s in the first line?

    This is a good start for a step by step interpretation but it wouldn’t hurt to be a little bit more specific with what should be done to interpret a poem from the point of view of a Semiotician.

    I see a denotation thing happening in your 4th step. I like denotative and conotative relationship but will a semotician be that interested?
