|Signs||Wolf I 56
Signs/Mill: E.g robbers in One Thousand and One Nights: they make chalk marks on the door: the sign has a purpose (the distinction), but it does not actually have any meaning! Here, too, an attribute of the house is not denotated, but only the recognition is made possible.
N.B.: the plan was thwarted by the fact that all houses were given a chalk mark, so that the distinction was undermined.
Mill: proper names are analog to these chalk marks. They are only meaningless characters.
