I need your help again- a questionnaire!
Posted by Ste on August 19, 2003
I'm doing my degree thesis about proverbs, both Italian and English, and I prepared a questionnaire to know what people think about proverbs and which are the most common sayings.Since I am Italian I have some problems to find the 50 English speaking people required for this questionnaire: could you spend 10 minutes of your time to fill in this questionnaire? I will be very grateful to those who will help me!
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A PROVERB?
Put the following adjectives to define proverbs in descending order of preference, numbering them.
1) In your opinion proverbs are…
A- short and concise
G- not universally valid
2) A proverb contains…
A- some wisdom
B- a truth
C- a moral
D- an experience of life
E- a useful advice
F- a false belief
G- a relative truth, that is valid only in some situations
H- an old-fashioned vision of life
Please write down the first 5 proverbs that come into your head.
Please make a cross on your age bracket:
_ under 30
_ from 30 to 70

Thank you very much for your contribution!
