For Peirce (1931–1958), an act can only be a sign if it is interpreted as such. In this sense, anything can actually be a sign; moreover, the emphasis is placed on the receiver as the interpreter. Peirce adopted a triadic model: – The Representamen: the form which the sign takes (not necessarily material) – An Interpretant: not an interpreter but rather the sense made of the sign; – An Object: to which the sign refers. This is distinguished from Saussure’s dyadic model of signifier (our perception of the physical sign) and signified (the mental concept to which the signifier refers) by the object.
