Abstract

In the present book, the authors deal not only with traditional, well-known proverbs, but mostly with their modified versions, anti-proverbs. Anti-proverbs permeate all aspects of our lives and appear in a broad range of generic contexts. Although the alterations of proverbs are as old as proverbs themselves, their proliferation resulting from the rapid development of media is now faster than ever.
