Pomenúvanie kráv na Slovensku začiatkom 18. storočia (motivácia imien podľa súpisov bytčianskeho panstva)
THE PROCESS OF COW NAME-GIVING IN SLOVAKIA IN THE EARLY 18TH CENTURY /NAMING MOTIVATION BASED ON THE BYTCA DOMINION REGISTRY/
Languages of publication
As regards motivation, the early 19th-century cow-names belong to the earlier era when the predominant motivation of animal-names was their colour. Only later on did the motivation based on the animal's predecessors' place of origin, on the name of its preceding or current owner or keeper, or simply on a female - usually not frequently used - first name, gain ground. It is apparent that even such seemingly less significant category of proper names as the cow-names can be important in terms of the research of the history of the language and its dialects (especially lexis and word formation) and thus also in terms of learning about the earlier ways of life and thought.
