The Structure of the Russian Proverb.
Levin, Maurice I.
Bipartite and tripartite Russian proverbs are analyzed in terms of devices of repetition. Major attention is given to formulaic devices, including correlative, contrastive, and conjunctive formulas. Grammatical and phonetic devices are also discussed. An argument is advanced for the basic binary division of the Russian proverb, since even tripartite proverbs contain two main propositions. (AF)
