  •  Dimitra Sarakatsianou    


This paper provides an outline for a proposed project entitled ‘Knowledge Paths for Semiotics (KPS): Creating Digital Research Tools.’ The object of the paper is to show how a printed dictionary can be transformed into modular digital research tools. Although it is an ad hoc proposal on an analytical dictionary of semiotics it can be used as a model for creating related works. In general, it can be said that the proposed tools assist in the retrieval of information (linguistic and semantic), the acquisition of knowledge, and the extraction of new knowledge. In this context, three categories of tools are proposed: (i) terminology tools, (ii) learning tools, and (iii) tools for the discovery of new knowledge. In the conclusion of this paper, special emphasis is placed on the impact that will result from the implementation of this KPS project.
