Barthes says a lot about the denotation/connotation disctinction particularly in Mythologies and Image-Music-Text and needs to be mentioned.
--- This is part of a gentle rolling programme to fill in gaps in the semiotics coverage. I am aware that there are references to connotation in the semantics section, but I do not consider a merger acadmically justifiable. Naturally, you are all free to argue the case that I am in error. --David91 18:07, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)
