A symbol is a mark, sign, or word that indicates, signifies, or is understood as representing an idea, object, or relationship. Symbols allow people to go beyond what is known or seen by creating linkages between otherwise very different concepts and experiences. All communication (and data processing) is achieved through the use of symbols. Symbols take the form of words, sounds, gestures, ideas, or visual images and are used to convey other ideas and beliefs. For example, a red octagon is a common symbol for 'STOP', on maps, blue lines often represent rivers, and a red rose often symbolizes love and compassion. Numerals are symbols for numbers, letters of an alphabet may be symbols for certain phonemes, and personal names are symbols representing individuals. The variable 'x', in a mathematical equation, may symbolize the position of a particle in space. The academic study of symbols is semiotics. In cartography, an organized collection of symbols forms a legend for a map. Etymology The word symbol derives from the Greek symbolon, meaning 'token, watchword' from syn 'together' and bll ' 'I throw, put. ' The sense evolution in Greek is from 'throwing things together' to 'contrasting' to 'comparing' to 'token used in comparisons to determine if something is genuine. ' Hence, 'outward sign' of something.
