IF EVER THE ETYMOLOGICAL DICTIONARY OF THE CASSUBIAN LITERARY LANGUAGE WAS TO COME INTO BEING
Languages of publication
The currently emerging Cassubian literary language is characterized by a considerable amount of artificially created neologisms. These neologisms cause us to think about the types of linguistic mechanisms, which cause the emergence of forms and meanings that do not occur in the living Cassubian dialects. The solutions presented in the article refer to: 1. the distribution and the change in the meaning of the Cassubian naparłęczyć się ‘to come across, to turn up’, 2. the new functions of the dual pronominal form naju, 3. the vague etymology of the neologism swiąda ‘consciousness; awareness’, 4. the history of the emergence of the neologism spodle ‘background; basis’.
