Auditory Interfaces as a Sign System: An Application of Peircean Semiotics to Human-Computer Interaction
Unformatted Document Text:  XX exists or not (Peirce, 1955). Peirce said icon might be divided into three types: an image, a diagram, or metaphors. An image is simple qualities as basis of the sign-object relation. When an icon represents that the relation between sign and object are basis of similarity, it is a diagram; a map is typical example. And metaphors are those which represent no relation between sign and object. An index is its object not so much because of any similarity or analogy with it, nor because it is associated with general characters, as because it is dynamical connection both with the individual object, on the on hand, and with the senses or memory of person for whom it serves as a sign (Peirce, 1955). In other words, an index is related to its object through co- occurrence and is affected by the object. A symbol is a sign that refers to the object that it denotes by virtue of a law and it is itself of a general type and acts through replica. Most linguistic signs are symbol. For example, we speak of writing or pronouncing the word “man”; but it is only a replica that is pronounced or written. The word itself has no existence although it has a real being. It is general mode of succession of three sounds or representation of sounds, which becomes a sign only in the fact that a habit, or acquired law, will cause replica of it to be interpreted as meaning a man or men (Peirce, 1955). Third trichotomony According to pierce third trichotomony is that a sign may be termed a rheme, a dicent, or an argument. A rheme is a sign of qualitative possibility and is understood as representing a possible object. Any rheme will afford some information but it is not interpreted as doing so (Peirce, 1955). It is neither true nor false but it is a sign that is interpreted as qualitative

exists or not (Peirce, 1955). Peirce said icon might be divided into three types: an image, a
diagram, or metaphors. An image is simple qualities as basis of the sign-object relation. When
an icon represents that the relation between sign and object are basis of similarity, it is a
diagram; a map is typical example. And metaphors are those which represent no relation
between sign and object.
An index is its object not so much because of any similarity or analogy with it, nor
because it is associated with general characters, as because it is dynamical connection both
with the individual object, on the on hand, and with the senses or memory of person for whom
it serves as a sign (Peirce, 1955). In other words, an index is related to its object through co-
occurrence and is affected by the object.
A symbol is a sign that refers to the object that it denotes by virtue of a law and it is
itself of a general type and acts through replica. Most linguistic signs are symbol. For example,
we speak of writing or pronouncing the word “man”; but it is only a replica that is pronounced
or written. The word itself has no existence although it has a real being. It is general mode of
succession of three sounds or representation of sounds, which becomes a sign only in the fact
that a habit, or acquired law, will cause replica of it to be interpreted as meaning a man or men
(Peirce, 1955).
Third trichotomony
According to pierce third trichotomony is that a sign may be termed a rheme, a dicent,
or an argument. A rheme is a sign of qualitative possibility and is understood as representing a
possible object. Any rheme will afford some information but it is not interpreted as doing so
(Peirce, 1955). It is neither true nor false but it is a sign that is interpreted as qualitative
