A. The Background of the Study

    Semiotics (also called semiotic studies; not to be confused with the Saussurean tradition called semiology which is a part of semiotic) is the study of meaning-making, the study of signs and sign processes (semiotic), indication, designation, likeness, analogy, metaphor, symbolism, signification, and communication. Semiotic is closely related to the field of linguistics, which, for its part, studies the structure and meaning of language more specifically. 

   The semiotic tradition explores the study of signs and symbols as a significant part of communications. As different from linguistic, however, semiotic also studies non-linguistic sign system. 

   Semiotics may offer an interesting contribution to education. Semiotics, indeed, is concerned with signs of any kind and with the various modes in which humans signify. According to Umberto Eco (1979) Semiotics is devoted to describe the functioning of communication and signification. Semiotics and education are research fields with mutual interests and overlaps. The study of signs and sign proce sses help to understand how teaching means to communicate by means of signs and how learning means to interpret and to grow in the capacity of interpreting signs. 

   According to Shadiqi (2014) on his journal, “Semiotic Analysis of South Park Cartoon Comedy”, semiotic Analysis today can be applied to film, theatre, music, architecture and many thins that can be take as signs. Chearbhaill (2008) on his journal illustrated that the analysis of semiotics in movie should captivate the audience using signs and deliver messages, the analysis figures out that a movie can have strong referential function representing many aspects of reality.
