Humans, consciously and subconsciously, are always striving to make sense of their surrounding world. Symbols--such as gestures, signs, objects, signals, and words--help people understand that world. They provide clues to understanding experiences by conveying recognizable meanings that are shared by societies.
The world is filled with symbols. Sports uniforms, company logos, and traffic signs are symbols. In some cultures, a gold ring is a symbol of marriage. Some symbols are highly functional; stop signs, for instance, provide useful instruction. As physical objects, they belong to material culture, but because they function as symbols, they also convey nonmaterial cultural meanings. Some symbols are valuable only in what they represent. Trophies, blue ribbons, or gold medals, for example, serve no other purpose than to represent accomplishments. But many objects have both material and nonmaterial symbolic value.
This book will help you learn how to use symbols and acronyms in daily conversations and texting. It also gives you essential information about what it means and when to use them in the right way for the situation.
