Project Description

The purpose of the project is to study the peculiarities of national eco-linguistic behavior as presented in Kazakh paremiological (proverb) units.
It is aimed at defining how different ethnos living in a certain surrounding developed its own adaptive ways and strategies to deal with nature and society and what eco-ethical principles and norms are formed by the ethnos during many generations as social survival programs in the biosphere.
