  • Irony, a Way to Escape Censorship

    • Authors: Heidi Toelle
      Pages: 8 - 23
      Abstract: Among Arab authors, a number of Egyptian writers use irony when addressing a criticism to the politics settled by the authorities. The enunciator of the text is perfectly aware that what he writes, or the speech he assigns to one of his characters, is a false compliment addressed to the government policy, since he intends to say or to make say the very contrary. He manages, at the same time, to put his words, and/or those of his character, in such a context that allows the reader to understand that the apparent meaning of the uttered speech is not what the enunciator, or the character, suggests. This same context also allows the reader to decode the secret meaning, easy to find, considering that the apparent meaning of the speech and its secret one are in relation of contrariety. To demonstrate that, I take as an example a short story published in 1980 by Yûsuf al-Qa‘îd from his collection Hikâyât al-zaman al-djarîh (Tales of the Injured Time).

  • Iconicity (of Reading). Lolita

    • Authors: Irina Melnikova
      Pages: 24 - 65
      Abstract: The paper focuses on the issue of iconicity of (printed) literary narrative and proposes the idea of iconic reading (or iconicity of reading). It discusses Peircean notion of iconic sign, examines its use within the field of iconicity studies in language and literature (Olga Fischer, Christina Ljungberg, Winfried Nöth, etc.), and considers the differences of paradigms in iconicity research: (1) iconicity as a permanent property of a sign; imitation pattern – form mimes meaning; (2) iconicity as a variable quality of a sign, actualized by the speaker; imitation pattern – form miming form; (3) iconicity as the ground of human thought and a function of a sign, actualized by the reader / reading. Consideration of the differences within the field of iconicity research helps to reveal the underestimated textual aspects that actualize iconic dimension of literary narrative, and inspires to examine their role in the analysis of Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, precisely, its “Foreword” (both original English and Russian versions). The analysis of the fictional “Foreword”, which establishes the pattern of iconization of the novel as a whole, and inevitably includes the references to its “main” part, shows how the novel iconizes writing. Withal, the analysis demonstrates how this iconization configures the particular model of reading, which becomes the representamen of the specific cognitive icon. The mental representamen of this icon “stands for” the specific object – the text as the tangible media product, marked by the structural and discursive traits of its own. Respectively, such (cognitive) icon represents the pattern of mimetic relationship between form and meaning, introduced by Lars Elleström (2010), – meaning mimes form, worthy of further consideration.

  • On the Edge of Meaning: the Thingness of Artwork

    • Authors: Arūnas Sverdiolas
      Pages: 66 - 103
      Abstract: Semiotics and philosophy both claim the status of a meta-language, hence enter into a dialogue with one another and each tries to translate the other into its own language. Contemporary analysis of material culture is informed by the so-called linguistic turn, which was performed by structuralism and affected all humanities. Ferdinand de Saussure’s semiology and the semiotics of Algirdas Julien Greimas and his colleagues work in this area by extrapolating the notion of the text to various fields of inquiry. The problematics of archeology, architecture, and other artifacts demand thinking through the issue of the matter. The paper provides proof that, in its attempts to respond to this demand, semiotics either stays within the frame of the idealistic semiotic existence of an indeterminate status or deploys metaphysical rudiments-and-supplements.

  • La réception internationale de l’oeuvre d’Algirdas Julien
           Greimas

    • Authors: Thomas F. Broden
      Pages: 104 - 130
      Abstract: Cet essai adopte la perspective centrée sur les voyages, les échanges et la traduction pour étudier l‘impact international de l’œuvre d’Algirdas Julien Greimas. L’étude s’attache à mettre en évidence les facteurs clés qui ont affecté la diffusion des idées du linguiste et sémioticien à l’étranger. La plupart des recherches sur ses méthodes se concentrent à juste titre sur la France, où il a enseigné et développé son groupe de recherche, et sur les publications en français, langue initiale et la plus utilisée pour les travaux dans ce domaine. En revanche cette étude explore plutôt la propagation de ses innovations dans d‘autres pays et langues. Des éléments d‘histoire socioculturelle, de relations internationales et d‘histoire intellectuelle esquissent le contexte dans lequel son projet s‘est élaboré et s‘est étendu à différents pays. Les relations entre la France et les autres pays pointent trois grandes catégories dans la réception que connaît le projet greimassien, pour chacune desquelles cette étude se concentre sur deux régions prises comme exemples. L‘article examine d‘abord les cultures qui manifestent les affinités les plus étroites avec la France à savoir celles romanes, en étudiant de plus près l’Italie et l‘Amérique latine. La deuxième catégorie comprend des pays qui jouissent de convergences moindres mais toujours appréciables avec la société française. Il s’agit des zones de langues germaniques, pour lesquelles l‘Amérique anglophone et les pays de langue allemande nous serviront d’exemples. Le dernier panneau du triptyque explore des pays qui entretiennent des relations plus lointaines avec la France, notamment durant la carrière de Greimas, en se focalisant sur la Russie-l’URSS et la Chine. La conclusion tente d’évaluer à quel point des facteurs tels que les structures institutionnelles et les contacts personnels, l‘histoire et le contexte socioculturels et le statut pédagogique et sociolinguistique du français exercent effectivement un impact sur son accueil à l‘étranger. L’analyse de la réception mondiale de l’œuvre de Greimas permet de découvrir les facteurs qui conditionnent la propagation de la sémiotique dans le monde entier.
