The paper deals with the orthographic rules and principles of writing capital and small initial letters in individual words in multi-word toponyms. The author focuses on the characteristic of toponomastic terms according to the types of objects they name, but especially on the principles and problematic cases of writing capital letters in multi-word anoikonyms (minor place-names) resulting from their adaptation to the literary form in lexicographical processing and from the process of their standardization by the Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Authority of the Slovak Republic. The paper also presents suggestions for changes in the Slovak orthographic rules that could solve these problems and would simplify writing capital letters in toponyms for ordinary language users.
