I love that this word was not discarded from an era when long distance meant using flags for signals. It is still used in computer science today. Even more precious is that it comes from the Greek for signal bearer.

Just being weird here, but what's a sema for? Is it related to a meta?
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
