Description of English-Italian Proverbs
English-Italian Proverbs for. This App is the digital version of ‘A Dictionary of English and Italian Equivalent Proverbs’ published by Teodor Flonta. Equivalent proverbs are those which express the same concept, be it literally, such as ‘Love is blind’ = ‘L'amore è cieco,’ or with completely different words, such as ‘Every cloud has a silver lining’ = ‘Non tutto il male viene per nuocere.’ The App is a very useful reference tool for scholars of the two languages, for researchers working in various associated fields such as linguistics, literature, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, and for workers in newer areas such as advertising and contemporary media. It is also of interest to diplomats and politicians who try to improve their communication by sharing ideas formulated in some common meaningful expressions; it will assist interpreters and translators, and teachers and students for whom it is important to understand not only what the target culture expresses in the same way as their own, but also what is formulated in a different way. The App is also of benefit to non-professionals who, for the sheer enjoyment of it, wish to savour the wisdom, wit, poetry and the colourful language of proverbs. No matter what your native language is, if you have a smattering of English and/or Italian, with this App and its multiple features you can improve and reinforce your knowledge of one or both of these languages.
