Examples of use of signification
1. It was just there, portending nothing, without signification.
2. The manner in which the Intergovernmental Meetings have been conducted has inhibited rather than encouraged negotiation and deliberation. The rules of procedure–as well as UNESCO‘s normal practices–have been inconsistently applied and at times completely ignored. The insistence on voting under the guise of "signification" has encouraged division rather than fostering the development of consensus.
