On Zipf's law and rank distributions in linguistics and semiotics

V. P. Maslova, T. V. Maslovab

a M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Physics
b Moscow Economical Institute

Abstract: A number of formulas of linguistic statistics are refined. The notions of real and virtual cardinality of a sign are introduced. We show that a formula refining Zipf's law for the occurrence frequencies in frequency dictionaries can be extended to arbitrary sign objects, i.e., semiotic systems.
