Estimated date of publication – August 2022 (No. 3).
A special issue of the journal "Slovo.ru: Baltic accent" (2022, No.3) is devoted to the semiotics of the city. Modern semiotic practices imply the creation of semantic ensembles based on the intersection of different information codes and channels. The city will be investigated as an object of semiotic analysis, i.e. as a historically changing system of signs organised according to a set of cultural and functional principles and organising social practices of residents.
SIGNS AND MEANINGS: PROBLEMS AND PERSPECTIVES This Slovo.ru: Baltic Accent issue is devoted to the connection between the notions of sign and meaning. Being aware of the inexhaustibility of the problem, the editors suggest taking Frege's triad sign - sense – meaning as a reference point. Frege’s work “On Sense and Reference” formed the basis of modern semantics in logic, linguistics and semiotics, and any research in this area would be implausible without it. At the same time, since Frege initially developed his model for solving mathematical and logical problems, its extrapolations in linguistics and semiotics lead to several problems that have not yet been sufficiently studied.
