Saying and saying

The difference between the saying and the saying is that the saying is a popular expression that is formalized by its common use and a saying is an expression formed with a moral .

Today, despite the fact that the saying and the saying are used as synonyms , the differences are still distinguished because despite speaking the same language, oral traditions vary from region to region.

The sayings portray everyday situations and print advice from popular wisdom.

The saying is a phrase that figuratively presents a moral. The moral is the teaching that is extracted from an anecdote or story. A saying becomes a saying when it is popularized by using it as a popular saying.

Some examples of sayings are:

  • To foolish words on deaf ears.
  • Better known bad than good to know.
  • A gift horse does not look at the tooth.
  • Loose lips sink ships.
  • Where the captain rules, the sailor does not rule.
  • A bird in hand is better than a hundred flying.

Some examples of sayings are:

  • Like Pedro for his house.
  • From said to fact there is a long way.
  • The occasion while the sun shines.
  • One swallow does not make a summer.
  • At home blacksmith, wooden knife.
