The study of intersemiosis, i.e. of the translation between pictorial and linguistic semiotic systems and their hierarchy, can provide the basis for an in-depth semiotic study of the socio-economic and historical-aesthetic landscape of the city. This study offers a preliminary methodological separation of sign systems on the shop signs in Limassol, showing up the ways intersemiosis remains the standard historical communication method of shop signs since the advent of mass commerce.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/12997||ISSN:||2155-5036||DOI:||10.4018/IJSSS.2016070101||Type:||Article|
