In response to the connection between art and linguistics the following
essay may be of help. It incorporates semiotic theory and
post-structuralist theory within a larger discourse of art and art

"Implications of Gregory Bateson's ideas for a semiotic art education." By
C.A. Bowers. In Critical essays on education, modernity, and the recovery
of the ecological imperative. New York: Teachers College Press. 1993

Some other essays and texts that discuss semiotics and post-structuralism

"Semiotics and Art History" by Mieke Bal, N. Bryson

"Thinking about education structurally: and Thinking about education
By C.H. Cherryholmes. From Power and Criticism: Poststructuralist
investigations in Education. New York:Teachers College, Columbia
University. 1988

Literary Theory: An introduction. (chapter on semiotics and
poststructuralism) University of Minnesota Press. 1983

Hope this helps,

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.
