Semantic Triangle

Syntax, Pragmatic and Context put together are really mandatory and essential for understanding the meaning of information, i.e. the Semantics.

A Symbol stands for an Object in the real world. The Symbol itself can be ambiguous as it may denote to several objects/things. The Symbol symbolizes a Concept. A Concept refers to an Object.

The sender has to give sufficient information to disambiguate the Semantics for the receiver to make it clear and the symbols Concept unique. Therefore, it needs Context and Experience to put the Context and the Semantic in the right way to perceive the meaning of the message and to understand each other.
