The Monist 58 (2):307-318 (1974)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Criteria of quotationality vary in nonlinguistic symbol systems, and there is the question whether quotation is even possible in some contexts. For instance, can one painting or dance movement quote another? If a painting is autographic, how can it be duplicated in a pictorial quotation? And if scored dance gestures can be duplicated like words and sentences, what then corresponds to the reference giving quotation marks in languageā€”stage-winks fore and aft? This is enough to show that different arts have different problems with quotation centering around the separate issues of establishing criteria of duplication and of reference.
