Most of the entries published here were created for an encyclopaedia of semiotics, but were only published (by Oxford University Press 1999) in a reduced and rather revised version; indeed, some of them were not published at all. I have therefore decided to make the original versions available on the net, and to supplement them with some other similar texts. Most of the entries are about visual semiotics, but some of them also concern more general concepts and other semiotic domains. I expect this encyclopaedia part to evolve through the coming years, perhaps also with contributions from other semioticians.
