The purpose of this paper is to make a proverb analyses between the various phraseological expressions that originate from different regions in Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, and Montenegro. The aim of this research is morphonological and pragmatical analysis of the Albanian proverbs due to empirical and theoretical phraseological methodology. What motivated us to write this paper is the fact that a relatively high number of this proverbs are used in phraseological expressions, so they are important in the respective culture and tradition. Idiomatic language is human-centred, because human body, or nature serves as an important source of idioms or proverbs as they resonate with anyone, both physically and metaphorically. These proverbs and idioms may display the philosophy of the people speaking Albanian language and serves as a window into the Albanian culture and tradition. Proverbs create accurate images in the mind that draw the reader's or listener's attention. Proverbs are not only used as stylistic features but also as persuasive arguments reflecting a people's way of life, culture, and tradition. Studying language makes one aware that proverbs provide insights into the linguistic situations of scientific creativity. Moreover, proverbs and phraseologies are incredibly diverse and enable students to understand the wide range of opportunities and expressions that the language offers.
