This thesis deals with understanding the meaning potential behind the linguistic properties of sound and its design using the concept of relevance to understand the design layout of sound. This thesis is also an attempt to understand how different categories of sound and its design like ambience, dialogues, sound effects and music function as a linguistic unit. In the process, it is an attempt to form a comprehensive use of structure in sound and its design taking the animated film Wall-E (2008) by Pixar in order to showcase the usability of sound in a creative approach. The central idea in using Wall-E is to make a statement showing the communication abilities of sound and its design.
