Having been derived from the oral literature, proverbs are short, rhythmic and popular sentences which contain wisdom, truth, moral and traditional views in a fixed and metaphoric form. Every nation’s oral literature has a rich collection of proverbs which have been accepted by both scientists and common people as the valuable abstracts of life experiences. One can often understand the nations’ magnificence of thought and the quality of social genuineness along with their literary talent through studying the proverbs. The purpose of the current research is to compare the proverbs of Kurdish and Bosnian languages to find similarities and the reasons of these similarities and differences. The results show that the similarities and differences of these languages’ proverbs are due to similarities and differences in ideas, religions, beliefs, life experiences, social and cultural issues and so on. Keywords: comparative, study, Proverbs, Kurdish, Bosnian
