Linguistics has principles used in order to inquire about language. Some of these principles are double articulation, arbitrariness, linearity, etc. For its part, Semiology, too, has notions such as sign, signifier, signified, etc. Sometimes Linguistics too uses these notions. We know that linguistics and semiotics are very similar disciplines. Both are designed to study, develop significance and meaning. For example, the signifiers "a tree" (linguistic sign) and "a tree picture" (visual sign) have the same signified: /tree/. We then ask this question: Can we explore, develop these two signifiers ("linguistic" vs. "visual") under the same principles? This article aims to investigate to what extent linguistic principles are consistent and compatible with visual signs.
