Способи вираження посесивності в мікротопонімії та ойконімії України
MetadataShow full item record
Possessive is realized in the language in different ways at its numerous levels. Toponymy system of Ukraine represents mainly possessive names which have been formed on the basis of combination of possessive adjective and a noun. Belonging of geographical object was expressed not only by possessives ending in *-jь, *-inъ, *-ovъ/-evъ but also by place names of the other types: -івка (Василівка), -щина (Романівщина), -иха (Юрчиха), -івці (Гринівці), -инці (Кузьминці), -иця (Тарасиця). The ways of expressing possesive (possesivus) at the level of place names and microtoponymy have much in common: it is best revealed in the names ending in *-inъ, *-ovъ/-evъ which are possessives traditionally. Possessive names ending in *-jь remain only at the level of place names due to their archaic character. Possessive is expressed by Genetivus Possessivus at the intermediate stage between appellatives and proper names, that is why Genetivus Possessivus is characteristic of microtoponymy. As to names ending in -івка, -иха, -щина, -иця, these toponyms express possessive (possessivus) only partly, so their functioning on the territory of Ukraine is restricted.
