In
medicine,
a
sign
is
a
feature
of
disease
as
detected
by
the
doctor
during
physical
examination
of
a
patient.
It
is
therefore
"objective",
as
opposed
to
the
patient's
experience
(symptom),
which
is
(relatively)
subjective.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Si
*
In
semiotics,
a
sign
is
generally
defined
as
"something
that
stands
for
something
else,
to
someone
in
some
capacity"
(Marcel
Danesi
and
Paul
Perron,
"Analyzing
Cultures").
It
may
be
understood
as
a
discrete
unit
of
meaning.
Signs
are
not
limited
to
words
but
also
include
images,
gestures,
scents,
tastes,
textures,
sounds
-
essentially
all
of
the
ways
in
which
information
can
be
processed
and
communicated
by
any
sentient,
reasoning
mind.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Si
*
In
general
linguistics
Ferdinand
de
Saussure
described
a
sign
as
a
combination
of
a
concept
and
a
sound-image.
A
sound
image
is
something
mental
as
it
is
possible
to
talk
to
oneself
without
actually
moving
the
lips.
But
normally
the
sound-images
are
used
to
produce
an
utterance.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Si
*
as
defined
by
Ferdinand
de
Saussure
and
used
in
semiotics,
a
linguistic
fact
comprised
by
a
signifier
(or
sound-image)
and
a
signified.
When
understood
in
the
context
of
a
set
of
linguistic
conventions,
the
signifier
has
meaning
as
it
points
to
a
particular
concept
(its
signified).

*
An
objective
physical
problem
or
abnormality
identified
by
the
physician
during
the
neurologic
examination.
Neurologic
signs
may
differ
significantly
from
the
symptoms
reported
by
the
patient
because
they
are
identifiable
only
with
specific
tests
and
may
cause
no
overt
symptoms.
Common
neurologic
signs
in
multiple
sclerosis
include
altered
eye
movements
and
other
changes
in
the
appearance
or
function
of
the
visual
system;
altered
reflexes;
weakness;
spasticity;
circumscribed
sensory
changes.
