Duke University Slavic Centers : Reference Grammars This set of reference grammars has been designed for advanced-level language users and linguists to compare semantic categories across languages.

Symbols are more complex as they may represent a more abstract idea.

Semiotics Is your Brand using the right Symbols? Our world is full of symbols, and we are all surrounded by symbols and signs every hour of every day.
