Świat nazw własnych w Niemiecko-polskim słowniku Mrongowiusza cz. I, toponimia
THE WORLD OF PROPER NAMES IN MRONGOVIUS’S GERMAN-POLISH DICTIONARY
Languages of publication
A purpose of the article is to present and characterize proper names registered in the German-Polish dictionary by Krzysztof Celestyn Mrongovius (1853/54) with particular consideration of toponyms, especially geographical names, choronyms and hydronyms. Rich and diversiﬁed onomastic material, adorned by frequently interesting and valuable remarks by Mrongovius, proves the lexicographer’s good knowledge of the then current as well historical geography, mostly European and Polish, including the lands that were the dearest to him: Pomerania, Warmia and Masuria. Comprehensive acumen of a profoundly and scrupulously educated European of the mid 19th century is conﬁrmed here.
