TURKISH URBAN NAMES EXEMPLIFIED BY THE TOWN OF ESKISEHIR (Los nombres urbanos turcos en el ejemplo de Eskisehir)
Languages of publication
The paper presents a selected lexical material concerning urbonyms of the city of Eskisehir in Turkey. Examples of names of all the districts (77), selected communication highways (941) as well as commercial and service centres (775) are analysed. The work uses the material collected in the course of the authoress' fieldwork and from cartographic sources. In each of the three groups of urbonyms a division into types of the name structures as well as the semantic and grammatical distinction of components of those names were made. For each urbonym a translation into Spanish was suggested. Within each of the groups a classification into names stemming from proper names and from common names was introduced. The concluding remarks contain the interpretation of the data as well as an outline of the naming tendencies within the Turkish urban toponymy.
