If semiotics is often described by semioticians as the study of all significant sign systems, language becomes, as it were, the most significant semiotic of semiological systems because of its unique, innumerable, human, interactive and functional potential. On the one hand, proverbs, as a result of their metaphorical essence, become a very significant aspect of the use of language. On the other hand, they are universal and have specific cultural tools of ethnic signification.
