Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The article deals with the problem of syntactic position taken by an anthroponym in the structure of a proverb. Surnames in proverbs take place of a subject, an attribute, an object, an adverbial and a predicative. The last position does not mean that surname plays a predicative role. This function appears only when a surname is associated with certain meanings - when a surname functions partially as a common noun. This tendency is often observed in proverbs.
