This course prolongs and gives a deeper understanding of the course on General Semiotic COMU1121. It is situated within the framework of a socio-discursive interactionism taking into account the interactions between the systems and semiotic devices in social interactions and process of socialization and organization. In this perspective, the course comes back to various dimensions of mediatized communication updated by the linguistic theories and semiotics to give a deeper understanding ot these theories and widen them to analogical signs in a broad sense (images, gestures, voice).
