Znaczenie dialektologii w badaniach z zakresu zoonimii
MetadataShow full item record
The paper points to the particularly close connection between individual dialectal systems and zoonymy. Its author shows these connections to be of both structural-phonological and semantic nature. Hence zoonymy should be studied against the background of the systemic conditions of particular dialects with regard to methods used in dialectology. The applicability and the role of dialectology, in the study of folk zoonymy is shown on the example of 4 villages in the area of Tomaszów Mazowiecki: Podhorce, Justynówka, Przecinka and Górno. From the point of view of dialectal systems the villages belong to the so-called "Newer Eastern Pronrtier". The zoonymic system of the studied dialects - especially the names of cows and horses - is represented (among others) by the following features: a) the predominance of primary names of the type Krasa, Kasztan over secondary names of the type Krasula, Karuś b) the occurrence of the formative -uJa solely in the zoonymic function; с ) the occurrence in the zoonymic function of the formtiye -olall-’ola (unknown in central Poland) in names of cows of the type iukola, d. a relatively common occurrence of proper personal names of the type Baśka, Wojtek in the zoonymic function.
