Peirce’s Semiotics – Weather

Peirce has 3 different types to the semiotics, Icon, Symbol & Index. We were asked to show examples of the three different types to do with weather.

Icon –

  • Photos
  • Forecast

Symbol –

  • Suncream
  • Coat
  • Hat
  • Umbrella
  • Thermals
  • Caution road signs

Index –

  • Sunrays
  • Raindrops
  • Snowflakes
  • Foggy
  • Frost
  • Slippery roads

Also, when I went on FaceBook today I had a greeting message ‘Good morning, Connor!’ with a sunny weather symbol in the bottom right. This is a symbol that the weather is sunny today due to the use of sun and small cloud.
