signifying

  1. Present participle of signify.
    • Macbeth (c. 1603), Act V, Scene V:
      Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
      that struts and frets his hour upon the stage
      and then is heard no more: it is a tale
      told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
      signifying nothing.
