Nová pražská detoponymická urbanonyma
NEW DETOPONYMIC URBANONYMS IN PRAGUE
Languages of publication
The paper analyses the motivation and functions of the detoponymic urbanononyms that came into existence between the years 1998 and 2011. The analysed names of streets and other public places in Prague are classified into four basic categories: (1) names with an orientation function, (2) names with a commemorative function, (3) names with a systemic function, (4) names expressing proprietary relationships. Unlike the names formed in the preceding periods, these newer names do not display many deviations from the usual form of detoponymic urbanonyms. This fact enables the author to devote more attention to the motivation of the individual names, though the form is also analysed within the individual motivation categories.
