I don't know of any lesson plans for this topic but one of my recent hobbies
is reading post structuralist and structuralist linquistic theory. Thsi
segment of linquistic theory really relates to art on many levels...For the
most part, it deals with the signs and signifiers in language...which relates
to symbols in art and text in art. I doesn't strictly deal with spoken word.
I can refer you to a theorist that relates to art.....Roland Barthes. Other
theorists such as Jaques Derrida, Ferdinand de Saussure, Jaques Lacan, Julis
Kristeva, Claude Levi Strauss, Norm Chompsky, and Charles Sanders Pierce.
If you have any questions about linquistic theory please ask....I don't
know how helpful I may be but I can give it a shot.
