Northrop Frye, however, takes a different approach to structuralism by exploring ways in which genres of Western literature fall into his four mythoi (also see Jungian criticism in the Freudian Literary Criticism resource):

S- Semiotics is extremely useful in its attempt to describe precisely how television produces meaning and its insistence on the conventionality of the signs.

S- When he (Metz) wrote his semiotics of the cinema, he identified five channels of communication: image, written language, voice, music, and sound effects. In borrowing these categories, I substitute the term graphics for written materials so as to include logos, borders, frames, diagrams, and computer animated images that appear so often on our television screens.

And then again another passage on page 896, the right-hand column halfway down: “… [C]oncepts are purely differential and defined not by their positive content but negatively by their relations with other terms of the system.” Now probably this is hard to accept intuitively. We feel as we process the world around us that we know things for and as what they are. I look at something and I know what it is, forgetting that possibly I only know what it is because of a context in which indeed it is not those other things that are linked to it.

Well, we can continue. On a light-up valentine it means “don 8767 t stop, go.” It has the function, in other words, of negating its own meaning in another semiotic system, in this case the semiotic system of the stoplight. On an ambulance or a police car admittedly, many of these lights are blue these days but let 8767 s suppose that, tradition prevailing, that they are still red they mean “get out of the way” or “stop,” right? In other words, they probably bear a distant relation to the semiotics of the stoplight, and that 8767 s probably why red was chosen for ambulances and police cars: because they put into your head the notion of “stop.” But it 8767 s a notion that 8767 s complicated in this case by the equally imperative notion “get out of the way,” which doesn 8767 t at all necessarily entail stopping but rather accelerating in a different direction.

S- More important, they (Saussure and Pierce) wished to argue that all signs are cultural constructs that have taken on their meaning through repeated, learned, collective use.

This procedure opens the door to several sciences, psychology, anthropology, normative grammar, philology and so on which are distinct from linguistics but which claim speech in view of the faulty method of linguistics as one of their objects. As I see it, there is only one solution to all the foregoing difficulties. From the very outset [and this is [laughs] a really peculiar mixed metaphor] we must put both feet on the ground of language and use language as the norm of all the other manifestations of speech.

Now by the way, there 8767 s an anecdote, the truth of which I 8767 ve never been able to ascertain, that during the cultural revolution in China, Madame Mao very much disapproved of the fact that red lights meant “stop” because red is, of course, the color of progress. It ought to mean “to go forward” with everything behind it, but needless to say her thoughts on the subject were never implemented because [laughs] if one day red light means “stop” and the next day red light means “go,” there might be a few problems. This, by the way, is a way of showing the fact that everything which appears in a semiotic system is conventional, right? I mean, there is an emptying out of positive meaning in the very awareness that, after all, the red light could mean “go” I 8767 m about to go on and give more examples. It 8767 s conventional. Whatever the convention is within a system of differences, that 8767 s what makes the sign intelligible.
