  Abstract:  The Proverb: Virtual Formula/Syntagmatic Extension. In our study we compare paremiological expressions belonging to different cultural codes to show that, in defining the proverb, the syntagmatic extension, the verbal operators and the roles are fundamental criteria. We consider as roles the Agent, the Rule, the Consequence and the Infringement. From this point of view any proverb can be reduced to a virtual formula which corresponds to a concrete syntagmatic extension.
