Interpreting the symbols is based on understanding of the codes, genres and contexts of the sign use. Codes are systems of signs, enabling us to understand the connection of the sign and its object – languages, alphabets and heraldic systems are examples of codes. There are several definitions to genre, but for the sake of simplicity, we can define genres as classes of communication content used to correctly decode the encoded meanings, such as “fact”, “fiction”, “science fiction” or “film noir” (read more from Chandler 1997; see also Stenros 2004 and Kim 2003 who have applied the concept on role-playing).
