Abstract

This paper is an attempt to discover the semiotic relationship between time and language in the motion film Arrival. There is a clear attempt from the makers of this film to blend linguistic research with humane narrative. Time and Semiotics play seminal factors in this film as they both mark the understanding of the unique plot structure of the film that converts a popular Hollywood theme into an academic research. This study will also examine the practicability of linguistic relativity in this film through the lead character Dr. Louse Banks. It will also shade some light considering novel languages from a culturally and temporally connected perspectives.
