CONFRONTATION OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF ANOIKONYMS (MINOR PLACE NAMES) IN JEMNICE, ROSICE AND LHOTICE
Confrontation of the Knowledge of Anoikonyms (Minor Place Names) in Jemnice, Rosice and Lhotice) In this paper, the authors compare the results they came to during the research of the knowledge of the anoikonyms amongst the representatives of three generations in three Moravian localities (Rosice, Jemnice, Lhotice). The individual generations gradually loose the awarness of the anoikonyms gathered in 1960s and 1970s. From the original set of them, the oldest respondents do not know approximately 25 %, the middle generation 50 % and the youngest generation 75 % of the names. Also new names relating to a new way of life were recorded. The anoikonyms are therefore a lasting part of the everyday communication, but their collection is not constant – it is variable and reflects the communicative needs of the language users.
