Metalanguage Gabriele Röttger-Denker Barthes zur Einführung Hamburg 1989

I 26
Metalanguage/Barthes: Barthes makes the distinction: Connotation language and metalanguage (> Hjelmslev)
Metalanguage/Barthes: when a sign of a first system becomes the signified of a second system. For example, the "little black dress" is the level: festive occasion, second level: signified for a formulation in the fashion magazine.
I 26
Connotation language/Barthes: very similar: first system: (lttle black dress that means festive occasion) becomes the signifier of the second system, whose signifier forms fashion ideology or fashion rhetoric.
