Semi-Automatic for the People

(Semiotics, Linguistics, Philosophy of Language)

Well, after half a year I'm finally back to work on my semiology page. I got sidetracked badly with all the other crap. I'm amazed this page is even here. So, this is under construction, but it's getting somewhere at last.

My primary task at present is to get a better grasp on the subject, and maybe come up with a few somewhat relevant articles to post here. What would be greatly appreciated on my part is any input as to what aspects of the field at present you find sorely lacking, whether just generally, or more specifically in terms of web resources.

My name is Jay Whitten and I'm majoring in linguistics at the University of Kentucky. I hope to go on to grad school and study semiotics eventually. This page is basically a study guide for my own use, but I think it could also become something useful for anyone in the field.

I'm hoping, among other things, to gather together here as many links to useful sites for semiotics and linguistics as possible, and to archive some texts. Good ones aren't so easy to find, you know.

This is my index page outline (nothing much here yet)
