Auditory Interfaces as a Sign System: An Application of Peircean Semiotics to Human-Computer Interaction

A dicent is a sign of actual existence. It is interpreted as really being affected by its
object and as indicating. A weathervane is its example. It is affected by wind direction and it
indicates wind direction. And also body language is a dicent because it is interpreted as being
the direct result of a person’s actual attitude and is thus apprehended as actually being
affected by that object. Facial expression, body position, and gesture typically create effects at
the level of emotional or energetic interpretants (Turino, 1999).
An argument is a sign that is interpreted as a sign of law. A rheme represents its object
in its characters merely, and a dicent represents its object in respect to actual existence. And
that an argument is a sign that is understood to represent its object in its character as a sign. A
symbolic proposition and linguistic premise are an argument because they can prove its truth
by judgement.
Peirce’s basic premise is that our thoughts, images and concepts in mind can be only
by sign. Signification and communication can be realized by the semiosis. And Peirce showed
the modes of being by the semiosis based in his phenomenological category. The modes of
being are divided into three categories, that is, firstness, secondness, thirdness.
Firstness is the mode of being which consists in its subject’s being positively such as it
is regardless of aught else. That can only be a possibility. It is in itself without any relation to
others. The mode of being redness, before anything in the universe was yet red, was
nevertheless a positive qualitative possibility (Peirce, 1955). It is the category of the unreflected
feeling, mere potentiality, freedom, immediacy, of undifferentiated quality and independence
(Nöth, 1990). Secondness, according to Peirce, is a mode of being of one thing which consists in
