I am not attempting to intimidate anyone. It was clear to me, however, that you had limited knowledge of semiotic, linguistic, and hermeneutical theory. If you are really interested in how language works in relation to meaning, I can recommend an excellent reading list for you. It would include folks like Saussure, Wittgenstein, Chomsky, and Hirsch. Their theories differ, but as I said before, part of being intellectually honest means taking into consideration a diversity of serious scholarship.
