Cross-Ethnic Literary Semiotics in Nigerian Languages as a Tool for National Unity

  • Luke Eyoh


The paper illuminates the concept of semiotics, delineates French Structuralism as its theoretical framework, undertakes an ample review of related literature and explores the convergences in semiotic indices among selected Nigerian ethnic languages/literatures, emphasizing them as tools for national unity in Nigeria. It then makes a number of recommendations towards the attainment of unity in Nigeria in spite of our surface heterogeneous linguistic character.
