With the untimely death of the great paremiologist Peter Grzybek (1957-2019), the international community of proverb scholars has lost one of its most remarkable members (see Wolf- gang Eismann’s obituary and Wolfgang Mieder’s list of his pub- lications in the 2020 volume of Proverbium). While Peter Grzy- bek’s seminal article on “Semiotic and Semantic Aspects of the Proverb” appeared five years ago in Hrisztalina Hrisztova- Gotthardt and Melita Aleksa Varga (eds.), Introduction to Pare- miology. A Comprehensive Guide to Proverb Studies (Berlin: Walter de Gruyter, 2015), pp. 68-111 that is readily and without cost available online, it was decided to republish this significant theoretical survey in Proverbium as a lasting recognition of Peter Grzybek as a world-class scholar and special friend.
