Language is an artist’s tool. Salman Rushdie uses language to describe his character’s appearances, actions, inner feelings and thoughts. It is appropriate to say firmly that style of writing determines the genuineness and suitability of any literary works. It has also been perceived that effective employment of language in writing determines the expertise of the writers. Salman Rushdie uses proverbs as a tool to convey his intended meanings. The aim of the paper is to evaluate some famous proverbs used in the selected literary texts.

Key words: Proverbs, writing, meanings, language, stylistics, Salman Rushdie
