Languages of publication

EN
The authoress deals with the appellative 'bratr' (brother) and its derivatives in Czech minor place names, both in terms of their word formation and motivation background. The application of the word 'bratr' in minor place names provides some illustration of family and property relationships, it may commemorate (mostly tragic) past events or it may be used by way of metaphor to identify objects similar in shape or otherwise related. The appellative 'bratr' gives insight also into the spiritual history of the Czech lands - namely the activities of Czech evangelical Churches, which bear the word 'bratr' in their names.
