This volume, a sequel to Form Miming Meaning (1999) and The Motivated
Sign (2001), offers a selection of papers given at the Third
International Symposium on Iconicity in Language and Literature (Jena
2001). The studies collected here present a number of new
departures. Special consideration is given to the way non-linguistic
visual and auditory signs (such as gestures and bird sounds) are
represented in language, and more specifically in signed language, and
how such signs influence semantic conceptualization. Other studies
examine more closely how visual signs and representations of time and
space are incorporated or reflected in literary language, in fiction
as well as (experimental) poetry. A further new approach concerns
intermedial iconicity, which emerges in art when its medium is changed
or another medium is imitated. A more abstract, diagrammatic type of
iconicity is again investigated, with reference to both language and
literature: some essays focus on the device of reduplication,
isomorphic tendencies in word formation and on creative iconic
patterns in syntax, while others explore numerical design in Dante and
geometrical patterning in Dylan Thomas. A number of
theoretically-oriented papers pursue post-Peircean approaches, such as
the application of reader-response theory and of systems theory to
