ABOUT THE WAYS OF CREATION OF THE PROPER NAMES (O sposoboch tvorenia vlastnych mien)
Languages of publication
The problem of creation of the proper names is one of the most central topics in onomastics. The typology introduced in the paper is based on a theory of lexical motivation and takes into account two basic aspects: a) a motivating element, b) relation between a motivating element and a motivated element (proper name). The typology is done in several degrees predominantly on the basis of the feature - origin of a motivating element, three categories are distinguished: intra-lingual, inter-lingual and combined intra-lingual-inter-lingual nominations. Furthermore, a detailed analysis is provided within the framework of intra-lingual nominations (there are three categories: de-appellative, de-onymic and combined de-appellative-de-onymic nominations).
