What ideas . 3) Constructionist approach :

What are theories of the language representation ? And
how do we use this representational or symbolic system to regulate traffic ?

Representation is
a practice ,or a kind of ‘work’, which uses material objects as a effect .Representation
means using a language to say something meaningful about , or to represent the world
meaningful, to the other people .Language is a very broad and inclusive way to
represent something. “Language is complex relationship between sounds and
chords” (by Du Gay ,ed.1997and Mackay ,ed.1997). There are three
approaches  for explaining the
meaning  through language works they are

1)      Reflective
approach : In this approach  meaning is
thought to be something that can be defined clearly as it can be about a object
;person ;event and so on that can be seen as clear as one can see its face in once

2)      Intentional
approach : In this the words  refers to
the distinctive meaning  and reverse  cases  such as to share or exchange information ,
news or ideas  .

3)      Constructionist
approach : this approach refers to the behavior and  programs of public ; social personality of
speech .  The concepts and signs are such
that they represent its meaning .

functions as a representational system , as in the traffic lights example
traffic lights is a machine which produces different colored lights in three
colored sequence .The color of the traffic lights  have the divergent wavelengths  on the eye of the people , the phenomenon can
naturally or materialistic  that can have
sensation of different colors .The representation or the symbolic representation
is something that affects the spectrum of lights into different colors that are
differentiated  from their name such as
Red ;Green; yellow and so on

We represent or symbolize the different colors according to different color
concepts and this is known as conceptual
 color system of our culture”.(in text by
:hall ,1997)

to the todays society color does not have any specific meaning or value and
cannot be defined for a particular thing . Red color does not mean to “Stop” in
nature  ,any more than Green means “Go “.
Red color can be defined as the symbol of love and danger also. Green color
defines the  Environment  and satisfaction and further  more  .Red
and Green work in the language of traffic lights such as  ‘Stop’ and ‘Go’ are the interpretations which
have been allocated  to them in culture
by the code or custom by  governing
language. For example , according to the constructionist approach colors and
the “language of traffic lights work”(ibid) 
as a symbolize  or
representational system that is 
conceptual map of colors in our culture –the way colors are
distinguished from one another . Secondly ,there are ways or words or images
that are related , language of colors consists of more than just the  individual words for different points on
color of spectrum Meaning depends on
the relation between a sign and concept which is fixed by a code .  Meaning , the 
constructionist would say , is ‘relational’.

Collecting all the information under one Umbrella , I concluded that the
representation of language by colors has its own significance value to explain
something in a unique or a different way . The theories such  reflective ; intentional or constructionist
are the approaches that  have different
meanings of explaining one particular thing in three different ways  .Thus, the representational or symbolic
system plays a significant role to describe something in a reflective or
mimetic form of representation .
