Drawing on an ethnomethodological approach we argue that these interpretations should not be seen as being isolated from their contextual background. This context (such as the rules of the sports) and the semiotic actions taking place within them mutually elaborate one another. Analyzing several video recordings and their transcripts, we show how the social interaction of boxing fights consists of a “multi-layeredness of semiotic practice.” These layers of semiotic practice are complemented by what we introduce as asemiotic practices. Asemiotic practices exploit semiotic routines that are a part of boxing and attempt at weakening and overcoming the opponent during the fight thus eventually destroying his or her semiotic capacities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>von Wedelstaedt, Ulrich</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>von Wedelstaedt, Ulrich</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-08-30T11:29:56Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Christian</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2022-08-22</dcterms:issued> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Meyer, Christian</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-08-30T11:29:56Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Semiotic and asemiotic practices in boxing</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
