Tematizace toponym v memoárových textech (na příkladu měst Hradec Králové a Písek)
Thematization of place names in the memoir texts (as illustrated with the cities of Hradec Králové and Písek)
Languages of publication
The goal of the study is to present memoir texts as an important and rich source for onomastic research. The analysis is focused on usage, predominantly on thematization of place names in texts referring to the Czech cities of Hradec Králové and Písek. There are examined the following topics: the city name and urban names forms and appearances in the texts, the relationship between standardized and non-standardized forms of urban names, and etymology and interpretation of the selected urban names in the memoir texts. Place names in the texts are used in different ways – except the fact they identify particular objects and create urban space, they evoke emotional recollections of authors’ childhoods; they are also examined as the formative part of social group identity.
