Other features of spoken language might be consequences of adaptations specific to speech as well. For example, a recent study by Selten and Warglien shows that the emergence of communication conventions is facilitated by inventories of signal units that are relatively large with respect to the number of meanings that people express by using the units.
The second difference between experimental pragmatics and experimental semiotics is in their objects of study. Experimental semiotics studies the emergence of new forms of communication; experimental pragmatics studies the spontaneous use of pre-existing forms of communication such as spoken English. The emergence of new forms of communication is not a novel object of study. It has been extensively studied both with sign languages that emerge in relatively isolated populations e.
However, because experimental semioticians observe the emergence of communication in the laboratory, they gain access to new opportunities for scientific inquiry.
On the one hand, they have access to the complete history of the emergence of a communication system. As we shall see later, knowing the details of this history can greatly enhance our understanding of the emergence of communication. On the other hand, experimental semioticians can perform manipulations that would be very difficult to realize outside of the laboratory.
Outside of the laboratory, such manipulations would be problematic to realize.
Thanks to its focus on novel forms of communication and to the new opportunities afforded by laboratory research, experimental semiotics permits us to address questions that are complementary to those typically addressed by experimental pragmatics. In the next section I introduce experimental semiotics in more detail and review a sample of studies that illustrate its relevance for students of human communication.
Healey and colleagues adopted standard referential communication tasks such as those used in experimental pragmatics e. In particular, they asked people to graphically describe a stimulus such as a piece of music or a concept to a partner, without allowing them to use letters or numbers I will refer to this task as graphical communication task. Over a number of rounds of the game, Healey and colleagues observe people developing spontaneous communicative conventions to succeed at the graphical communication task.
Moreover, these studies reveal that the real-time interactive processes that typically support successful joint action in spoken conversation play an important role in shaping novel communicative conventions as well. For example, when people are allowed to have freer communicative interactions, they develop conventions with a higher degree of abstraction than when the interactions are more constrained Healey, Swoboda et al.
In particular, mutual-modifiability—the fact that people have opportunities to alter each other's graphical productions—has been shown to be a key factor for the development of symbolic conventions Healey et al.
Another recent study, this time by Garrod and colleagues Garrod et al. The study suggests three main conclusions. First, symbols do not develop out of iconic forms merely because of repeated use.
Some form of direct interaction between the producer of the sign and the receiver of the sign is necessary for symbolization to occur. Second, the process of symbolization is enhanced when people in a pair engage in richer interactions, exchanging roles as producers and receivers. Third, people that are not engaged in the interactions that give rise to a sign are less efficient in learning the sign than the people that developed it.
Through this process, the informational content of a sign used by two people gradually shifts from the physical appearances of the sign to a representation level in which the sign grounds itself in the shared history of its use.
That is, the first occurrences of a novel sign rely more heavily on the physical properties of the sign. At this stage the sign tends to identify one referent among all of the possible referents and iconicity is of much help. However, after a number of interactions, the sign begins to refer to previous communicative interactions rather than directly to its physical referent.
At this stage, the sign identifies one element of a small set of shared signs, and iconicity is no longer crucial. Nonetheless, iconicity does not completely vanish. A followup study by Fay and colleagues Fay et al. This occurs because of selective and adaptive processes that operate at the level of the community: On average, iconic signs are easier to learn and remember. Thanks to the fact that they use referential communication tasks that are commonly used in experimental pragmatics, the studies here summarized have the important advantage that they can be readily compared to studies of experimental pragmatics.
Moreover, as in the case of the study by Fay and colleagues, these studies offer new explanations for known phenomena such as the permanence of a relatively high degree of iconicity in signed languages. However, for the purposes of experimental semiotics, the use of standard referential communication tasks imposes also some limitations. One of them is that the semiotic challenge for the participants is relatively moderate.
On the one hand, participants in the studies described above know who must produce the forms for communicating and when. On the other hand, the meanings to be conveyed between participants in a pair are part of a set of meanings that the experimenter establishes for the participants ahead of time. For example, participants in the study by Healey and colleagues Healey et al.
The use of moderate semiotic challenges facilitates the rapid emergence of communication but it also limits the possibility to observe the spontaneous emergence of communication out of fairly unstructured activities.
Another limitation of studies that use graphical communication tasks is that, although non-textual graphical communication is less constrained by prior conventions than spoken language, a number of preexisting communicative conventions remain.
