The paths of signification and how signification takes form in words This paper aims to investigate the ways in which significations, mental contents, etc. articulate and define themselves in the minds of speakers who make up a linguistic community. Starting from the semiotic nature of meaning and understanding, in this paper we will consider how we come to understand meanings and significations and how the various ways that we portray and therefore classify our experience are set out and recorded in our memory. This analysis is carried out in particular through the a filter representing what happens when children go through the process of acquisition of the lexicon of an historical-natural language. Adults and children both create their own images and understanding of events, episodes in family life, life at school and games etc. that they are involved in, by building holistic structures (scripts) which involve development on narrative lines in time and space. The theory that we put forward in this essay is that of a local holism in which, starting from the earliest years of the life of a human being, constant and repeated reference to scripts and to shared situations is the most simple and natural way that we have of constructing and interpreting reality as providing a guarantee, on an epistemological basis, of signification and understanding.
