“This book is a fascinating study on human creativity as it is expressed in transforming well-known, conventional, and clichéd proverbs by turning them upside down. A valuable resource for anyone interested in verbal humor and the human potential for linguistic play.” -Zoltán Kövecses, Professor Emeritus, Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary, author of Extended Conceptual Metaphor Theory (2020) "The authors provide their readers with a kaleidoscope of proverb alterations, punning, and different devices of verbal humour, leading them skillfully into a better understanding not only of the nature and quality of anti-proverbs, but how a given language community’s worldview and attitude towards certain issues, norms and values change over time.” -Melita Aleksa Varga, Associate Professor, University of Osijek, Croatia This book is the first comparative study of English, German, French, Russian, and Hungarian anti-proverbs based on well-known proverbs. Proverbs are by no means fossilized texts but are adaptable to different times and changed values. While anti-proverbs can be considered as variants of older proverbs, they can also become new proverbs reflecting a more modern worldview. Anti-proverbs are therefore a lingo-cultural phenomenon that deserves the attention of cultural and literary historians, folklorists, linguists, and general readers interested in language and wordplay. Anna T. Litovkina is Associate Professor at J. Selye University, Slovakia. She is a linguist, a folklorist, and a humour researcher.

Péter Barta is Associate Professor at Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary. He is a linguist and a paremiologist. Katalin Vargha is a research fellow in the Institute of Ethnology at the Research Centre for the Humanities, Hungary. Her research interests include short forms of folklore and humor. Wolfgang Mieder is University Distinguished Professor of German and Folklore at the University of Vermont, USA. He is the founding editor of Proverbium: Yearbook of International Proverb Scholarship.
