I wondered whether anybody on the list knows about an online corpus available for download and consisting of English proverbs and/or set phrases. The objective is to turn the corpus into a data base that could be used as an aid for reading comprehension by helping learners of English as a second language to spot allusions to such proverbs or expressions.
Thanking you all in anticipation
