MODERN CRETAN HYDRONYMS DERIVED FROM HYDROGRAPHIC TERMS In my paper I discussed 590 Cretan water names that derive from Modern Greek hydrographic terms. They represent 12.6% among all the modern hydronyms of the island (4,666 names). As to the structure of the analyzed hydronyms, we can distinguish as many as 564 simple names (95,6%), 19 compounds (3,2%) and 7 elliptical forms (1,2%). It is worth emphasizing that numerous Cretan water names derived from hydrographic terms appear in the plural (113 simple names, i.e., 20.2%). Such a high frequency of the plural forms seems a characteristic feature of the Cretan hydronymy.
