Are words signs or symbols?

Are words signs or symbols? ( Vol-2,Issue-4,July - August 2017 )

Author: Mubasher Mehdi

Keyword: Sign, Symbol, Object, Image.

Abstract: This is not the debate of today. But language today is playing multiple roles. This is significant to talk now about the words. The structuralist, the formalist and existentialist approaches towards words should be seen. This very article looks at the different attitudes towards words and is based on Sartre’s remarkable book “What is Literature”.
