            The godfather of semiotics is Charles Sanders Peirce, and the other most notable past and contemporary theorists are Charles Morris, Louis Hjelmslev, Ferdinand de Saussure, Algirdas Julien Greimas, Umberto Eco, Thomas Sebeok, John Deely, and Jorgen Dines Johansen.
            Good introductory works include INTRODUCING SEMIOTICS: ITS HISTORY AND DOCTRINE and BASICS OF SEMIOTICS, both by John Deely, SIGNS IN USE: AN INTRODUCTION TO SEMIOTICS by Jorgen Dines Johansen, and FOUNDATIONS OF THE THEORY OF SIGNS by Charles Morris.
