Download an article

The article is devoted to one of acute problems of studying the classical cultural heritage of the East, that is the problem of proverbs. The author took as a basis bilingual (Turkish-Arabic) dictionary «Divanu-l-lugat al-Turk» of outstanding scientist-encyclopedist of the XIth century Mahmud al-Kashgari, which gains special interest in this sense. The author outlines that, up until now, proverbs from the «Divan» have been considered separately from the paremiological text and in her opinion, this approach had a significant drawback. The purpose of the research is, firstly, to analyze each paremiological text and secondly, to identify the reasons for the recurrence of some proverbs in different contexts.
