title = "Signs, Senses and Cognition: Lady Welby and Contemporary Semiotics",
abstract = "Susan Petrilli discusses Victoria Welby (1837–1912) and the Signific movement in her book Signifying and Understanding. The disposition of the book is chronological and thematic, and Petrilli{\textquoteright}s discussion connects Welby{\textquoteright}s work with contemporary semiotics, as well as with the intellectual and scientific landscape of Welby{\textquoteright}s own time. For instance, a selection of Welby{\textquoteright}s vast correspondence with intellectuals, researchers and philosophers important to linguistics, semiotics, psychology and anthropology, to mention a few of her interests mirrored in the exchange of letters, is included in the book. The review aims at further connecting Welby{\textquoteright}s work to semiotic research of the day, where phenomenological and modern cognitive influences are important.",
