Is the answer semiotics
By jove, you may be right.
Although, I feel like semiotics is more to do with symbols rather than semantics. Perhaps we are looking for something more along the lines of linguistic analysis and framework building.
I'd still go with your answer, on the basis that the teacher was looking for a (one) word, not a phrase.
Actually, do you know what, I think you're right, that you're wrong. Semiotics has to do with signs, not necessarily words.
I'm sticking with 'semantics' and taking it as a trick question on the teacher's part.
