Toponymie moderního sídliště - na příkladu pátého stavebního obvodu městské části Ostrava-Poruba
A toponymy of a modern housing estate : a case study of the fifth district of the municipal borough of Ostrava-Poruba
Languages of publication
This study is focused on the survey of a non-standardized (popular) toponymy of the fifth district of the municipal borough of Ostrava-Poruba, which was established, as a prototypical socialistic housing estate, from the 1940s to the 1980s. The green-field establishment of a self-sufficient city, the yard-based shaping of the construction, and the way the standardized toponymical structure was politically charged (commemorative names) became the main triggers and background of the development of popular urban names; these are studied from two different social groups’ points of view. The research started in a family whose three generations had been closely linked to the district; this survey was followed by another one, focusing on pupils of the local elementary school.
