DIMINUTIVE AND HYPOCORISTIC PERSONAL NAMES IN THE LANGUAGE OF SLOWACKI
Languages of publication
Diminutive and hypocoristic forms, relatively numerous in the language of Słowacki, were created primarily with the assistance of formants typical for Polish word-formation. For diminutives – also those from appellatives — that formant is -k-. A greater variety of formats appears in hypocoristic names, including foreign ones, e.g., -i, -y. In reference to persons close to him and to literary figures, Słowacki uses analogous formations. He also creates diminutive and hypocoristic forms from surnames.
