I have thought of the difference like this, LOGOS is the idea behind the
word including the spoken word and REMA is the word alone. For instance if
I say 'maroon' it brings up a color to the mind, the LOGOS is the color in
the mind as well as the word which brings it to mind. But I could also say
burgandy, mauve, dark red, carmine, etc. Each of those are REMA which bring
to mind the same LOGOS. That's my own observation, I don't have any lexical
backup for it.
