Osiemnastowieczne przysłowia w Nowym dykcjonarzu M.A. Trotza z perspektywy współczesnej
Eighteenth century proverbs in M.A. Trotz’s Nowy dykcjonarz in a contemporary perspective
Languages of publication
The subject of the article are proverbs excerpted from M. A. Trotz’s Nowy dykcjonarz which, for different reasons, have not stood the test of time, have been forgotten or replaced by other, easier to understand and more recent constructions, or which are still present in the contemporary language but in a changed form. The proverbs included in M. A. Trotz’s lexicon are manifestations of a colloquial language. Therefore, in a sense, they imitate the 18th century paremiotic system, which was once used but is now largely forgotten. The presentation and characterization of obsolete proverbs do not only fulfill a documentary and cognitive purpose but, above all, visualize dynamism of changes in a language and the world as well as an ensuing need to reach such areas of the language and culture that have been weathered by history.
