ideographic writing = a writing system using symbols (ideograms) to represent whole words or concepts ("ideas"). The Chinese writing system is often considered to be ideographic.
semiotics = 1 the theory of signs 2 the analysis of systems using signs or signals for the purpose of communication (semiotic systems). The most important semiotic system is human language, but there are other systems eg Morse code, sign language, traffic signals
