Example text

To link this argument back to the semiotic theories explored in the last section, the term ‘sign’ implies that there is a recipient to whom it is directed. Saussure argues that ‘ . . in order to have a language there must be a community of speakers . . a language never exists even for a moment except as a social fact, for it is a semiological phenomenon’ (Saussure, 1983: 77). In other words, to pick up on the ‘semiological’ notion, if language is a system of signs, then these only have meaning if they are recognized as such and interpreted.

A dialogic space of possibility The concept of implied ‘response’ that has been proposed by theories of dialogue (Bakhtin, 1981) offers a notion of a continual iterative motion of understanding; that is, meanings change as they move back and forth between speakers. Wegerif suggests that there is no clear line between speaker and listener, but rather ‘an inclusive space of dialogue within which self and other mutually construct and reconstruct each other’ (2008b: 353). This idea of ‘dialogic space’ is important as it creates a concept of possibility, while in the space between speakers – that is, the gap between intention and interpretation – meanings are provisional and response possibilities multiple.

Taking a sociolinguistic perspective and concentrating on the interaction between texts and readers, rather than context, Bloome and Greene (1984) define this more specifically to suggest that reading can be seen to support social relations between people as they jointly make meaning. The event then includes both interpersonal and intrapersonal processes within the sociocultural context. This involves the individual’s own past experiences and approach to the task, as well as their skills and knowledge (the intrapersonal).
