En lingüística y semiótica, el significado es el contenido mental que le es dado a un signo lingüístico. Es decir, es el concepto o idea que se asocia al signo en todo tipo de comunicación, como es el contenido mental. Definido así el signficado tiene un componente subjetivo que depende de cada persona, ya que cada una le asigna un valor mental al significado, pero por convención este significado debe ser igual para realizar una comunicación óptima (ver definición).
