ABOUT BELGRADE’S CONTEMPORARY HODONYMS OF ANTHROPONYMIC ORIGIN
Languages of publication
This paper analyzes the most important structural and semantic features of contemporary hodonyms (street names) of anthroponymic origin in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Struc-tural analysis showed that the majority of hodonyms are noun phrases with the noun street in the center and incongruent attribute expressed with possessive genitive of anthropo-nym. The most important results of motivationally-semantic analysis can be summarized as follows: (a) the biggest number of analyzed hodonyms is ideologically motivated by preserving memories of pre-war members of the Communist movement and the Partisan movement during World War II, (b) a large number of hodonyms is motivated by preserving the memory of the famous people from Serbian and world culture (writers, scientists and artists) and the famous people from Serbian medieval and modern history, (c) only a few hodonyms of anthroponymic origin with real motivation (streets named after people or families who are living or lived in the area where the street was established) were recorded.
