Meeting Description: The Colloquium serves as a real possibility to give an insight into the work done by scholars and for those who are enthusiasts of proverbs. On the other hand it will be an important lookout spot for linguists, historians, translators, folklorists, paremiographers, etc. to the fields of each other and to the work the devotees of proverbs have done.
