In the triadic semiotics of Peirce it is the interpretant, the site of the human subject where the sign (representamen) and its signification (referent) meet to create meaning that is central.
The distinctions between representamen, object, and interpretant are therein integrated.
From this perspective, a sign is a combination of three elements: the "object," what is represented in a sign; the "representamen," the way it is represented; and the "interpretant," the way it is interpreted (Chandler, 2007).
El proceso de semiosis se inicia cuando un objeto dinamico--real o imaginario--es representado por un signo (representamen) y el significado de ese signo (objeto inmediato) puede explicarse (traducirse en un interpretante).Representamen, objeto inmediato e interpretante son signos o entidades semioticos abstractos que estan para alguien particular en lugar de alguna otra cosa, en funcion de ciertos aspectos o capacidades.
Demais que, sob o julgo do instrumental semiotico peirceano, o processo de formacao do signo e dividido, melhor, analisado com enfoque em tres elementos: signo ou representamen (sempre representa algo a alguem); interpretante (ideia sob o signo a ser transmitida do objeto); objeto (do signo).
These theories in semiotic translation include the interrelations between Representamen, Object and Interpretant, and the theories of deduction and induction (see details below).
