The terms that I need to define  when reading Rhetoric of the Image by Roland Barthes:

  1. Anchorage is the text that provides the link between the image and the context.
  2. Connoted – Figuratively- the use of the word as its association and not necessarily based on the literal definition. 
  3. Diegesis – a narrative or plot, typically in a movie.
  4. Lexicon –  the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge.
  5. Imitari – Image has its roots in the Latin word imitari, meaning “to copy or imitate”.
  6. Metalanguage – multiple phrases, used to describe another language.
  7. Polysemy – the coexistence of many possible meanings for a word or phrase.
