• Análisis lingüistico comparativo
Hiram Vivanco


Professor Vivanco lays emphasis on the study of proverbs insofar as they
reflect expression needs of speakers in human groups, in this case English
and Spanish. Sinctacti cal, phonetic, semantic and lexical characteristics come in for analysis as well as others which do not belong in the linguistic field, but that complement it, like those which refer to different kinds of knowledge which
are drawn upon through the use of proverbs and their functions. The article
concludes with general observations on the nature and practice of proverbs
in English and Spanish.
