Inter-lingual factors in formation of non-Slovak female anthroponyms in Slovak language
Languages of publication
This article is the second part of the study describing problems encountered in the usage of non-Slovak anthroponyms in the contemporary Slovak language. In the inter-lingual context we evaluate current tendencies of these onymic units in texts, especially the degree and forms of the transformation of non-Slovak female names according to the traditional anthropomodel of Slovak female surnames. The fundamental question is the adaptation of foreign female anthroponyms, especially the feminization of surnames – an explicit indication of female gender of the person via the – ová suffix, added to foreign surnames, but also other related modifications (e.g. inverse word order of Asian names) when appearing in Slovak texts. The analysis has been carried out using the Aranea family of web corpora. This part describes the adaptation and feminization of Hispanic, Hungarian and Polish female anthroponyms in the Slovak language. We detected trends towards simplification of Hispanic multi-surname anthroponyms into single-surname forms and tendencies of domestication and regularization of feminine forms of Polish surnames conforming to adjective paradigms.
