ABOUT CERTAIN SLAVIC DIALECTAL NAMES OF PLANTAIN ‘PLANTAGO’
Languages of publication
The article deals with some Slavic dialectal names of plantain ‘Plantago’ which can be assumed as calques from Latin or German. Their Slavic forms seem to be native therefore dialectologists often find them as authentically dialectal words without checking their attestations in the past and doing comparative studies. However, these names have a rich history and a long tradition. They often appear in a number of Slavic languages. They sometimes have a different etymology in various Slavic dialects but they have the same semantic motivation.
