Languages of publication
The paper focuses on the unoficial personal names in the village of Bracovce (eastern Slovakia) and their functioning as a component of a multi-word phrase (idiom). It proves to be productive in everyday spoken communication. The role of the live name is not only to identify the person it refers to, but it is also an important psychological and sociolological factor. Analysed fixed expressions can be concisely characterized as phraseological or idiomatical units. These units are semantically more or less close by figurativeness of the official forms of idioms (known in Slovak phraseology). Specific aspect of these units is the unofficial anthroponym as its component. This aspect refers to the relation between onymic and phraseological motivation. The motivation of using the personal names in these unofficial forms of idioms is the attribute expressing mental, physical or working qualities of the person it refers to, it can also refer to a specific situation. The aim of the paper was to capture and record the behaviour of unofficial anthroponyms in microsocial background.
