Isi artikelThis paper proposes an 'integrational' approach to semiology, advocating the study of language and its functions as part of an integrated use of signs in human communication. As an example of the approach, textualization is considered. Here language complements and is complemented by non-linguistic signs in very complex interrelations. Textualization is selected for study because the modem world inereasingly relies upon a social competence organized by means of texts. Texts (written, printed, carved, etc.) appear on all kinds of artifacts and function siguificantly in ways which are not adequately described by giving a narrowly 'linguistic' account of what the text says. A theory of textualization must come to terms with this fact. Textualization is a cultural practice which cannot be explained by treating language and artifact as semiologieally independent. Reading and writing are involved: but the semiology of textualization goes far beyond these basic skills. Textualization as such is not parasitic upon literacy: on the contrary, literacy is based upon certain techniques of textualization, and emerges as its most artifact-neutral form. The implications of an integrational approach to semiology have important consequences for our definition of the linguistic sign itself.
