    ideational meaning

    Hi all,

    I need to explain what ideational meaning is. i know that ideatinal meaning is infomation and ideas expressed but i can't think of any examples, can someone explain it to me in simple terms because i just can not think. I'm probably just being dumb, but any explanations or examples or where i can find some info would be a great help.

    Kind regards
    Vegas

    Try here: TDAN Danielewicz - Finding Meaning in Systems
    If you scroll down, there's quite a clear and simple section on Referential and Ideational meaning using the example of 'unicorn', which can't really have a referntial meaning as it doesn't exist, but can be associated with the idea of one.
