Someone needs to fix the IPA transcription for the pronunciation. It is incorrect.

"Famous adages from roman times:
* Ad altentium fur mein: Owned and owned hard."
What does "Owned and owned hard" mean? Is this a joke? --126.96.36.199 15:06, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

for the accuracy , to help french users or other people willing to learn it and not to misunderstand the word Adage with Proverbe ; the french link should point to : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adage or http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/adage . Words are like animals and plants they tend to desapear from a language nowadays. I mean this word is not much used ; and leaving the link as it is helps the extinction .
also you can notice that the persons who edited,forged the french page for the word proverbe forgot in her/his list the word adage.

"in other languages"
Examples in article and examples section.
Does it seem odd to anyone else that there are 2 examples in the main body of the article, and then there is another examples section with further examples? To me it would make more sense to either:
- Only have examples in the main body of the article
- Only have examples in the example section
- Include some examples in the main body of the article and include a more comprehensive list at the end.
Personally I prefer that last option but how many would be listed? will there be so many that the article will be too long?05:37, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
