Abstract

Through this article we analyse a few aspects of semiotic categorisation (French Semiotics) which are necessarily present in the process of oral textual comprehension. Conceptual maps were performed after reading folkloric tales derived from Amazonian region. The research's objective is to evaluate in which way principles of inclusion, restriction and imbrication are part of text's comprehension. The methodology applies performing conceptual maps based on reading. Our research is part of a interdisciplinar project which integrates the dimension of informatics to its aims, through the support tool PIPA. The specificity of this software is to enable us to test on a large scale the relations of inclusion, restriction and imbrication, which are in concept maps, in an automatic way, considering referential categorisations and guaranteeing, as far as possible, the validity of the various research phases inside a domain which is extremely sensitive to the effects of subjectivity.
