INTERNATIONAL PROVERB SCHOLARSHIP: AN UPDATED BIBLIOGRAPHY, 1994*

The first ten volumes of Proverbium (1984-1993) registered the impressive number of 2,537 scholarly proverb publications in the form of books, dissertations, and articles. This clearly indicates an amazing level of paremiological activity throughout the world. The present bibliography adds another 230 items to this wealth of scholarship by researchers from very different fields. Most publications are journal articles, but there are also a number of major books, dissertations, and essay volumes. Publications in the field of phraseology are especially numerous due to various essay volumes edited by Jarmo Korhonen, Csaba Földes, and others. Of special importance is also the appearance of the first volume of >Paremia: Boletin de Investigaciones Paremiológicas (1993, 145 pp., all articles in Spanish), a major annual proverb publication edited by Julia Sevilla Muñoz. Every paremiologist should subscribe to this new yearbook, and it can be ordered and purchased by writing to Prof. Julia Sevilla Muñoz, Paremia, Vandergotten 8-20 f., 28014 Madrid, Spain.

Once again I would like to thank a number of colleagues and friends for their help in sending me copies of or information concerning new paremiological publications. My sincere thanks are due particularly to Bendt Alster (Helsingør), Malcolm Jones (Derbyshire), Jarmo Korhonen (Helsinki), Gyula Paczolay (Veszprém), Theodore Papadopoullos (Athens), Julia Sevilla Muñoz (Madrid), and Helmut Walther (Wiesbaden). Please continue to supply me with bibliographical information and, if at all possible, please send the actual publications. It is of great importance to international paremiologists that these annual bibliographies in Proverbium continue to be as up-to-date and complete as possible. Also please encourage colleagues and friends to subscribe to Proverbium. There are still many individuals and far too many university libraries which do not receive Proverbium. While volumes 2 (1985) and 4 (1987) are unfortunately out of print, all others can still be obtained. We definitely need more subscriptions, and we ask you to be of help in finding new subscribers so that Proverbium can continue to appear on an annual basis.
