Other nonverbal symbols vary across cultural contexts in their meaning. A thumbs-up, for example, indicates positive reinforcement in the United States, whereas in Russia and Australia, it is an offensive curse (Passero 2002). Other gestures vary in meaning depending on the situation and the person.
Apr 07, 2019 · Examples and Observations. "Within a given culture, some things are understood to be symbols: the flag of the United States is an obvious example, as are the five intertwined Olympic rings. More subtle cultural symbols might be the river as a symbol of time and the journey as a symbol of life and its manifold experiences.

The Abrahamic monotheistic religions have dominated the world for millennia. The entire western world and much of the eastern world is strongly influenced by some of the Abrahamic religions. One of the greatest signs of the impact of symbolic language on humanity is the symbols of religions. One must start by talking about Christianity. There is no doubt that the cross is the universal symbol of Christians. Jesus of Nazareth, one of the faces of the Holy Trinity according to many Christians, was executed on a cross. From there, that symbol was taken to represent any place where a Christian or Christian family goes, from clothing to big cathedrals. Something similar happens with the Jewish people, origin of Christianity. David, the second king of Israel, unified the territory and he is credited with the origin of the Star of David, the current symbol par excellence of Judaism, which appears even on the flag of the State of Israel. In Islamism, which does not worship images, there is...
Probably the most popular meaning of symbol is something physical that is designed by someone to identify something. But the different demonstrations that human beings perform and through which they express their feelings are also part of the symbolic language. One of the main examples of symbolic language that can be used is the embrace. Globally, two people embracing each other represent one of the greatest signs of affection and affection that exist. The advantage of the embrace is that the interpretation is usually done directly. Understanding the embrace as a sign of brotherhood is practically unanimous. On the other hand, there is the kiss, which is interpreted as more loving and passionate, also depending on where you kiss and the culture that interprets. Finally, another of the most popular signs of affection is the handshake, which has a pre-Roman origin. Through the handshake, two people show their respect and can, at times, seal an agreement or an alliance. This symbol ha...
Just as there are numerous signs of affection that humans show each other, there are many others that are rejection between people. Most of these are related to trying to send a violent intimidating message to another person, which undermines their personal and psychological identity. Universally, the violence Is recognized through fists. When a person offers a fist to another, in many cultures is understood as a way to start a fight. In the same way, there are different symbols that can be performed by hand to offend someone else. Gestures also play an important role in showing rejection. When one looks up or expresses superiority, he is showing his disapproval or rejection of what another human being says or does. Among cultures, rejection samples are highly studied, because violence is present in all societies.
The Globalization Has made the signals that can be seen in a road are of global knowledge. Although it is constantly felt that most people behind the wheel do not know the meaning of traffic signs, there are many signs that are identified by a large part of humans. A red hexagon with the inscription STOP is understood as something that indicates that it should be stopped. Another even simpler example: drawing a phone means that there is one nearby. A bed means there is a hotel or inn nearby. In this sense, it can be understood that in much of the planet Earth there are common symbols, probably imposed from the developed countries, but represent institutions that have consolidated in many latitudes. These institutions range from public services to the means of transportation and allow people who do not understand the language to know what to expect.

Mathematical languageis a system used in the field of mathematics to communicate mathematical ideas, concepts, and theories among others. It is distinct and unique from the usual language that people are used to, and is used to communicate abstract, logical ideas. Burns (n.d) mentioned 3 characteristics of mathematical language. These are being precise, being concise, and being powerful. Precision of mathematical language means the language is able to make very fine distinctions of things. Conciseness is able to say things briefly. Mathematical language being powerful is expressing complex thoughts with relative ease, being understood by most readers. Mathematical Symbolsare used to refer to certain quantities, concepts, ideas among others. The most common used in basic mathematics are numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, the four fundamental symbols of operation +, -, ×, ÷, and the inequality symbols ≠, ≤, ≥, < >, and equal sign =.
Amathematical expressionis the mathematical analogue of an English noun; a correct arrangement of mathematical symbols used to represent a mathematical object of interest (Burns, n.d). It does NOT state a complete thought, and does NOT make sense to ask if an expression is true or false. In mathematics areas, e.g. Algebra, the most common expressions are numbers, sets, and functions. A mathematical sentenceis the mathematical analogue of an English sentence, and is a correct arrangement of mathematical symbols that state a complete thought. Hence, it makes sense to ask if a sentence is true, false, sometimes true, or sometimes false. Take a look at the table below, to visualize the difference of expression and sentence in mathematics.
Mathematical sentences and expressions are commonly used in Algebra. In fact, these concepts are taught already during your 7thgrade. Let’s take a look back on the Language of Algebra where symbols, expressions, and mathematical sentences are first introduced. Common Words in Algebra 1. Variable. It is a symbol which represents a value or a number. Usually, small letters are used as variable, e.g. a,x ,y . 2. Constant. It is a number on its own which means the value never is definite and will never change, e.g. 4, 9, 35. 3. Term. It is a constant, or a variable, or a constant and variable/s multiplied together, e.g. 4, z, 5xy, 87xy, xyz.Literal Coefficient is the variable in a particular term.Numerical Coefficient is the constant in a particular term. 4. Expression. It is also called algebraic expression. It is a group of terms separated by the “plus” or “minus” symbols, e.g. 3x-2, x+3. As mentioned, mathematics uses sentences. In Algebra, these sentences can be written mathematical...
