The theory of nonverbal signs in fact forms part of the theory of syllogism and has both logical and epistemological features of interest. The nonverbal sign lies at the centre of the problem of how knowledge is acquired, whereas the linguistic symbol is principally connected to the problem of relationships between linguistic expressions, conceptual abstractions and states of the world.
