{{distinguish|detonation}}Denotation is a translation of a sign to its meaning, precisely to its (wikt:literal#Adjective|literal) meaning, more or less like dictionaries try to define it. Denotation is sometimes contrasted to connotation, which includes associated meanings. The denotational meaning of a word is perceived through visible concepts, whereas connotational meaning evokes sensible attitudes towards the phenomenaweblink

In semiotics

In logic, linguistics and semiotics, the denotation of a word or phrase is a part of its meaning; however, the part referred to varies by context:
  • In grammar{{Citation needed|date=September 2019}} and literary theory, the literal meaning or "dictionary definition" of a term, devoid of emotion, attitude, and color.
  • In semiotics, the surface or literal meaning of a signifier.
  • In logic, formal semantics and parts of linguistics, the extension of a term.
