Abstract:

The book presents a new science of semiotic linguistics. The goal of
semiotic linguistics is to discover what characterizes language as an
intermediary between the mind and reality so that language creates the
picture of reality we perceive. The cornerstone of semiotic linguistics is
the discovery and resolution of language antinomies ­- contradictions
between two apparently reasonable principles or laws. Language antinomies
constitute the essence of language, and hence must be studied from both
linguistic and philosophical points of view. The basic language antinomy
which underlies all other antinomies is the antinomy between meaning and
information. 

Both generative and classical linguistic theories are unaware of the need
to distinguish between meaning and information. By confounding these
notions they are unable to discover language antinomies and confine their
research to naturalistic description of superficial language phenomena
rather than the quest for the essence of language.(Series A)
