Knowledge of anoikonyms (minor place names) in Jemnice and Lhotice:
Within an extensive survey of anoikonyms in Moravia and Silesia, their list was made in Lhotice in 1969 and in Jemnice in 1974. The aim of the new comparative research, carried out in August 2009, was to find out in which degree the collected names were preserved in the memory of the representatives of three generations of the current population in both localities, whether they still use the anoikonyms in communication and in identification of the objects. From the original set of the names, mainly agronyms were not preserved in the memory of the respondents; nowadays, less people work in farming and forestry then forty years ago. Newly recorded names denominate especially places and local parts.
