THE BASES CERN- AND BEL-/BIL- IN THE ANOIKONYMS OF MORAVIA AND SILESIA
The bases čern- and běl-/bíl- in the anoikonyms of Moravia and Silesia The article deals with the bases čern- and běl-/bíl- in the anoikonyms of Moravia and Silesia. From the total sum of the names containing the lexemes with these bases, the names relating to the personal names, place names, other anoikonyms and prepositional names motivated by the position (the so called indirect names denominating the object in relation to another object) were excluded. The corpus of investigated anoikonyms, selected according to these criteria, numbers 391 names with the basis čern- and 182 names with the basis běl-/bíl-. Main attention is paid to the anoikonyms containing the adjectives černý and bílý, which predominate significantly in the corpus under examination (also derivated names are incorporated). A special section of the paper deals with motivational aspects of the names with the respective bases.
