Oficjalność i wariantywność imion nadawanych w Polsce
THE OFFICIAL AND VARIANT CHARACTERS OF NAMES GIVEN IN POLAND
Languages of publication
We received observations from PESEL on the number of appearances of given names for use for research purposes. I chose names which are lately, according to my knowledge, very popular and compared their numbers, as well as the frequency of bearers of names, with the names included in the dictionary of Józef Bubak and the dictionary of Jan Grzenia published later, in 2002. I also used in my article the observations of Professor Edward Breza and the conclusions of the committee appointed by the Polish Language Council (consisting of Prof. Irena Bajerowa, still living at the time, Prof. Julian Kornhauser, and myself, Prof. Aleksandra Cieślikowa) to evaluate the names presented by Prof. Breza. The number and proposals for studying corresponding names (on the basis of the materials provided by PESEL) are in the article. Proposals regarding double letters (sounds) and frequently used diminutives (Kuba) were the subject of discussion at the plenary session of the Polish Language Council. Not all the committee’s proposals were accepted, which is discussed in the above article.
