Résumé / Abstract

The analysis of results of the experiment, based on the use of questionnaires and carried out among the students of Moscow institutes, allows us to maintain the view that all the informants know actively the Russian proverbs in their systematic life and not only a set of definite proverbs. We call this phenomenon the Separate Proverb Fund (SPF). The greatest part of the SPF includes current proverbs (these proverbs are used by all the informants or the greatest part of them). The specific character of the SPF of informants concerns not more than a hundred proverbs with unequal dispersion within the SPF. In current use of young people the proverbs continue their development not only in the form of different variants, but also in the creation of new proverbs according to definite patterns. In our work we cite new proverbs, current among the young people, but also variants with correct and incorrect changes of components (in the last case the so called 'corruption of the proverb' takes place).
