"Hubsiimo hal baa la siistaa" contains the most popular Somali proverbs obtained from the paremiological experiment which was conducted by Dr.G. Kapchits among the Somali communities in Germany and Denmark in 1998-2001. Each text is cited in Somali, with an English translation and where necessary an explanatory comment. An introduction presents the aims and procedures of the experiment, the principles of the logico-semiotic classification and an analysis of the literary features of Somali proverbs. The appendices offer rich proverbial material for further folkloristic, philological and socio-linguistic research.
