[Xmca-l] Re: Imagination;semiotic mediation

I was puzzled by the stop sign facing out but that may be my lack of understanding of stop signs used by crossing guards in the US. Does it have STOP on both sides?

Hi Analissa

And how does the meaning of Stop change in the course of your noticing. For
me the crossing guard scenario initially dominated and then was replaced by
stop the cops from running over and killing the kids scenario took over, as
